Lost in the cloud of unknowing.
Words fogged or missing.
Hidden meanings, unsolved riddles,
The threat of swords summons fear
and a bird’s skull darkens
the clear stars of choice.
Numbers reveal blindness
to the heart’s armor.
Flowing is blocked from the inside,
the river is damned.
Love’s simplicity is tired and tangled
and ghosts veil the light.
But here is the Empress,
birthing The Lovers,
in rivers of beauty.
And here, the Fool,
stepping out into space,
falling in grace once again
with handfuls of hope
and a trembling trust
in the reds of desire
and the blues of a longing
for coming home.
Yielding affects the desired transmutation.
Quiet loving acceptance is the way.
Understanding follows peace.

‘The 100′ series was initiated by my 100th Post in April 2012. As text and images are the essence of my blog my intention is to present 100 pieces of text based art from historical and contemporary artists and from my own hand. To view the series to date click on ‘The 100’ in my Category Menu.

John just great. Love the immediacy of these sensations. And how that centre red wash invites the whole idea of experiencing the Empress.

Dear Kathleen, thank you very, very much, just came back from reading your post, you know you have made my day in so many ways…I left a comment…warmest hugs to you
Wonderful John. Like all Tarot readings inviting reflection and intuitive understanding yours leads us through mazes of twists and turns of clarifying and colourful visions all bathed in mystery. The painting brings it all together.
