One must make a distinction however: when dragged into prominence by half poets, the result is not poetry, nor till the autocrats among us can be “literalists of the imagination”—above insolence and triviality and can present for inspection, imaginary gardens with real toads in them, shall we have it.

Words Count With Mama Zen

Image result for tarot card

Tarot cards have a long and fascinating history.  Originally used for playing card games in the 15th century, the cards began to be used for divination in the blah, blah, blah.  We don't need to know all that today!  Today, we're just goofing.

Your assignment: visit Astrology.com to get your tarot card for the day (it's free; no sign-up). Explore the meaning of your card.  Treat it as a joke, a portent, a really cool piece of art - whatever suits your muse.  Just make sure your muse keeps her musings to 60 words or less.

Don't forget to share your card!  Have fun!

One of these days, you must tell us more about this fascinating "divination in the blah, blah, blah" you speak of. :-D

Yummy prompt!

Didn't want to get too serious, Magaly!

I know. And I'm glad. It made me giggle.

Thanks Mama Zen! I needed a way to be gracefully snarky. :)

Thank you.MZ, for this lovely inspiration – which I did use, but not for 60 words only, so I am not linking in Mr Linky. If you'd like to see anyway: http://passionatecrone.blogspot.com.au/2017/06/card-for-day.html
