Tarot Haikus


For a whole hour I've been playing with my tarot of the sweet twilight to find ways to do readings in a different style but instead I found a way to use it for creative writing. I'm a huge fan of writing haikus so to motivate me to write more haikus I got my deck and started shuffling. I picked 3 cards the first card will be only 5 syllabols, the second one 7 syllabols and the third card 5 syllabols. What I did after that I just look at all 3 cards to see what caught my attention and just wrote down whatever came in my mind.

An example:

To live as freely (10 of chalice) -> My inspiration in this one was the woman and man hold their hands together as well laying down without any worry

We learn to love each other (the empress) -> This one I used the heart of the woman cheek and crown as well the world that she hold on her hand

Itís a gift we share (6 of pentacles) -> The last one I used was the woman throwing coins to anyone who is there

xxx

It was a fun way to pass the time as well it can be use in any deck or oracle you have so far I only wrote 5 haikus using my Sweet Twilight tarot, just wanted to share it with all you guys.

Here is my other 4 haikus

#1

Ready to flutter (temperance)
To explore and live freely (knave of pentacles)
Nothing stands my way (7 of wands)

#2

Listen to your heart (the high priestess)
Donít turn your head to the wrong (the devil)
Our love is stronger (knight of chalice)

#3

Move forward, donít turn (5 of swords)
Be brave to stand your own ground (7 of wands)
Donít flick any harm (3 of swords)

#4

The person and I (the fool) -> The person is meant to be a higher being
Torn between two sides to choose (the emperor)
I decide not fate (strength)

Great idea, Lil Red. Your example haiku was especially nice to read.

I'd like to add one, if I may. (Using RWS, I drew Rx 8 of Wands, 7 of Pentacles, and Rx 5 of Swords). I also study Japanese and thought it would be fun and good practice to try both languages.
