Scrying Mirror – 25 Tarot NaPoWriMo

Have you heard of doing “shadow work”? Looking at the “dark” side of yourself to fully understand your potential and your gifts. It is quite freeing to be real with yourself and to embrace your shadow, not deny it. The “Scrying Mirror,” “Shadow” card calls us to do this self-discovery.

Journaling on my shadow explored the “double-edge” of my archetypal strengths: Teacher/Guide, Connector/Networker, and Poet/Story teller. I came up with goals where I needed to do more or less of a tendency to better manage stress and time. Let’s see what comes out in the poem.

Poem 25 of National/Global Poetry writing month (AKA NaPoWriMo). “Scrying Mirror” oracle card from Witches Wisdom pack by Barbara Meiklejohn-Free and Flavia Kate Peters, artist Richard Crookes.

Scrying Mirror


Queen Grimhilde
did not see her jealousy
of Snow White
so obvious in her “Mirror Mirror on the wall.”
Did not see the dark side of her beauty
was vanity.
Grimhilde could have used her beauty
to appreciate beauty,
could have befriended Snow White,
could have made a bosom friend.

“Oh Snow White, let’s go shopping
for new gowns.”
“Snow, invite the dwarves for tea
to liven up the castle.”
“Oh Grimhilde, let’s go apple picking
for I adore apples.”
“How wonderful it is to have
a beautiful friend.”
