GloPoWriMo: Day 11

It’s the eleventh day of GloPoWriMo and today’s prompt was to write a poem that addresses the future, answering the questions “What does y(our) future provide? What is your future state of mind? If you are a citizen of the “union” that is your body, what is your future “state of the union” address?”

I really struggled with this one but have written a poem loosely based on the future, or at least fortune telling, inspired by the tarot.  I hope you enjoy it.


The wheel of fortune spins
The magician holding your fate in his hands
Judgment is upon you
Will you get the world?
Or a star
Even if you were shooting for the moon?
If the devil brings
Death to your
You can be sure justice will be served
Even if you need strength
For a while to steer your chariot
And keep your tower up
Lovers will come and go
The empress
Or emperor of your heart
Becoming the hanged man
And you being a hermit
With the hierophant
And high priestess
Teaching you temperance

Or perhaps we will all end up fools
