Napowrimo 2018 / Day 27 - The Empress

Napowrimo 2018 / Day 27

Prompt - Write a poem using a tarot card as inspiration.

Mythic Tarot
The Empress

Fecund Goddess, swell
beneath your gown, fertile,
creative, ripening
the grain, poppies at your feet.
Citadel your diadem.

Mourning mother, your
darker aspect.  Punishing
Gods' and man, who take
What is not theirs to give. You
Withdraw your gifts, we see dread
Demeter, life denying.

 Liz Greene and Juliet Sharman-Burke
