I had the very good luck to receive a copy of Rachel Pollack’s soon to be released (May 2009) “Fortune’s Lover: A Book of Tarot Poems”. I have always regarded Pollack’s work very highly, and this present small (42 page) book does not disappoint.
Based on the twenty-two cards of the Tarot Major Arcana, each card speaks out from its own wisdom – some from the present, some from the past. From the Fool we hear:
“Out of nothing comes Magic.
Out of Magic come Silence.
Out of Silence comes Passion.
Out of Passion comes the flow
of earth between
heaven and birth.”
I am so pleased to see the wisdom of the Tarot in the form of poetry. I am even more pleased to see that it was published. Good sense prevailed, and its worth was seen.
Perhaps these voices will take you into another time and place, and gift you with fresh insight into the marvelous story that is Tarot.
