Poems inspired by tarot/oracle cards did not end with poetry writing month. (Search “Tarot NaPoWriMo” in my archives to see them.) The Sacred Threads Oracle deck by Heather Rhodes at Studio Petronella is my treat-for-me purchase after meeting Heather in Sadhana. Every photograph is beautiful! When leafing through the deck, this card, “Receptivity,” called to me. It needed a poem to process. What showed up were pieces of a psychic reading I had done last year, my quick menopause, ancestry, and a bit of Yoga. Interesting. What are you receiving?

ReceptivityReceptivity card from Sacred Threads oracle by Heather Rhodes of Studio Petronella

I receive gratefully all my seasons
like the flow of spring
to deep glistening winter.
I flow like the trees
Half Moon in the wind,
Mountain in the sun,
and Child’s pose nurse-tree in death.

I receive the gifts of all seasons
in the stroke of a year,
in the stroke of a millennium
for my soul is old,
Shaman vibrations through
the circles of incarnation.
This is my path
swimming headlong
through primordial waters
spiraling upward
to Angeldom.

I am not just wind on the water
my ripples run deep,
fossil waves of sandstone
from ancient ocean beds
up through Viking and Celt
land-wisdom, wild apples, broadsword, and shield
tilling the soil of humanity
with my hands and far-reaching intuition
receiving the chocolate oath of authenticity.
