Thanks for creating and sharing another great poem, Kasie!! :smiling_face_with_three_hearts:

I definitely had a “haiku moment” with this one. Especially reading the reversed meaning. It clicked for me!

Beautiful again, @kasie! :clap::heart_eyes: The thought and care you put into your writing really shines through. For reversed meanings, I think many readers (myself included!) often just stick the word “not” in front of the upright definition: the upright high priestess is wise? Then reversed means “not wise”. But for your reversed meaning you used different and unique words to give it an entirely new and powerful character- which you were able to capture in a haiku! I really, really love this- well done :heart_eyes:

Thanks so much for sharing, Kasie! :heart:

Thank you so much @Francisco, @TheTravelWitch! I’m glad you both liked this! It’s really helping me learn too, there are just so many books on tarot it’s easy to get confused. Thanks for liking it!
