Day 27

Cups call to me
hearth and home
rims brimming
vibrating with sound
surrounding us with bounty

Yet today is the day of Swords
Seven Swords crossed
Two Swords significant

Two sword-twins:
frozen North, insular
staunch and strict;
exuberant South,
young, daring,

Concord in a state of arms:
demilitarized for sixty five years
families split, friends lost,
spies peering across the line.
Test courage in friendship:
justice is blind.

Seven swords:
quarrel and fight
a plan that may fail,
yet confidence
in hope.

May swords know cups.

Day Twenty-Seven’s challenge: pick a card (any card) from this online guide to the tarot, and then to write a poem inspired either by the card or by the images or ideas that are associated with it.
