Tarot Haiku

For those who follow me on Facebook and Instagram, you may have noticed that there’s been a sudden influx of tarot based Japanese poetry. This is a new method I’m trying to help understand the base meanings behind each card. It’s also a lot of fun and really gets you thinking.

For those who dont know, a haiku is a poem with a 5, 7, 5 syllable structure. That means you have to describe a cards meaning in no more than 17 syllables. It’s a fun challenge and one that let’s my writer side have a play as well. Here’s an example for the High Priestess

The High Priestess from The Rackham Tarot

See beyond the veil

Answers are within yourself

Hear you inner voice”

Why not give it a go yourself. It’s a great way to get you thinking about the meaning behind the cards.
