In tarot
9 is completion/attainment
the ending and the beginning

Not alpha and omega
but this 9
9 meeting to pray
9 deaths

are a numerology
of loss

something uncountable
and hopefully over
because we are full of it

About Susan L Daniels

I am a firm believer that politics are personal, that faith is expressed through action, and that life is something that must be loved and lived authentically--or why bother with any of it?

  1. Susan, this is very touching. It prompted this gibberish from my shocked state!

    Before Nine
    next time
    I will mutter Fine
    and refuse to pine
    nor whine even when
    within wilts from pain

    No, I shall learn to speak
    my pain and my shame
    and write Nine anew
    its stomach on its head
    carried by a tiny leg
    – one overloaded straight line

  2. So sad and senseless.

    It’s good to see a poem from you. I hope you and yours are well and happy. I enjoyed your Tarot poem. It gives me a better understanding of the nine cards.

  4. Reblogged this on visionvoiceandviews and commented:
    The Charleston shooting reminds us painfully of the savage that lurks within us….so sad, so shameful.

  5. Lovelovelove the multiple layers of meaning in that last phrase. We are so full of so many things.

    You hit the nail on the head. Good, very good. And appreciated.

  7. Oh. I’ve missed you. My fault.

    Such as sad event. So thoughtfully rendered.
