You are interested in the Tarot.

You do not know very clearly why.

You are vaguely aware that it contains elements which could help you grasp a number of truths about yourself, your orientations and your future, or about things that have from time immemorial remained difficult to access, concerning the nature of the world and the destiny of human beings, about what people mysteriously call “knowledge”.

But you do not know which way to handle the Tarot. You are disturbed by the appearance of some cards. Possibly you recognise shapes, images or ideas which seem familiar or meaningful, but what is to be done with, say, the VI of Cups?

You have read books that deal with the Tarot, you have realised that a considerable number of big words are to be found there, and a great deal of moralising. You have noted that the authors display a lot of confidence about what they profess while remaining rather hazy: you wonder to whose authority they are indebted for such assertiveness, while as far as you are concerned you just manage to skim over the surface of the Tarot; you wonder how true their affirmations are: for in order to buttress their own explanation of the Tarot, they keep referring to other systems, or to their own inner convictions, which, admittedly, are not necessarily erroneous.

But although unable to articulate your impression, you have a deep-rooted feeling that there is something more, that the Tarot is something other than this muddy, muzzy and dusty mixture.

You are right.

The Tarot is in itself a living construction, a pure and integral path.

It is you; it is the Universe. What you only need is a means to see it…

We seek poets who revel in undermining conventional thinking by giving voice to what conformity would have us bury and forget—the fact that we are diverse, feeling, and thoughtful beings, completely singular in character, circumstance, and in our possible modes of expression, and so invaluable to each other as gateways to creative discovery.

Published every three months, Volume 2 Issue 3 of Brickplight is out now and features poetry from Eric BurgoyneSam KasparKatrina KayeLaurinda LindCameron MorseRobert L. PenickDarrell PetskaMahta RiaziMinoti Vaishnav, and Patricia Walsh, as well as three new poems by J H Martin, which you can read for free here.
