2015 | 2 | Prudence


Take care, then,
For aren’t you
more than
a little
nagged by the
fire drive

To devour it all
Before you know
which fruit is borne
Of this

Do devoir,
And so too
They’ll do.

Like you,
They need only
the soil of

Turn it over softly,
with the sweet
echoing memory
of yesterday’s

The next trudge,
may startle
precarious root
Unless you shhshh
the voice
of imprudence.

  1. this text is lovely.
    did you write it, in relation to the tarot? or does it have another source?

    • I wrote it today in response to my daily card. 🙂

      • I’ve read your prose for years. I didn’t know you are also a poet.
        thank you for this beauty in my day.

      • You’re welcome. Thank you for reading generously. And, if I may say so, poetry is my true calling, while prose is my constant struggle.
