Cup

I find You whennapofeature3
I drink deeply enough
I feel your lines and colors
gentle waves of compassion
folding over me, holding me

If I drink passionately
my heart slows into a rhythm
that says your name,
calls my name, two as one
woven into a precious canticle

When I find You, when I have
sipped fully and freely
you touch me tenderly,
consume me, keep me near

Now, begin free-writing based on the card you’ve chosen. Keep going without stopping for five minutes. Then take what you’ve written and make a poem from it.”

So I decided to pull a tarot card from an app I have, The Goddess Tarot by Kris Waldherr. I pulled the Queen of Cups. Here’s is what resonated with me the most: “Within ourselves is the ability to feel profound joy and appreciate intense beauty–the presence of this card suggests a new awareness of this state of grace…”
