Revealed: The Moon

The Moon

Macro photo of shimmer upon dark water. Gratitude Tarot card The Moon: if I listen closely a tattoo upon my soul: follow your heart, she always knows.

what is below the dark shimmer

of this moment

what mystery looms

in your shadows

do I pause here letting

fingers of doubt

                            claw me back from this quest

                                                  if I listen closely
                           a rhythm asserts itself
         a tattoo upon my


each pause a vacuum
      unloaded of meaning


      upending my fears

deep within

a refrain repeats

follow your heart
                         she always knows

          follow your heart



Deception spreads its cloak so as to hide answers and grow your fear. 
Listen closely to the song your confusion sings to learn the hidden answers 
in your depths. Your intuition will prevail.

    It’s true, she does always know… we can only follow our hearts.

      My beautiful poet-sister, I know you know this – you show it every day! Thank you for all you do and for being here in my soul-family.

      Hugs and butterflies,

    Thank you! This is beautiful! I have been working really hard this past year on following my heart and listening to my inner being. I too often ignore it, and always learn in hindsight that it was correct!!!

    I love your poetry. It flows so smoothly and pulled me in right away. My favorite part is the end and the repeated reference to following your heart, each slightly different. Thank you for sharing this.

    Okay, this is my FAVORITE card from your deck, and it still retains traditional interpretation of the Moon card as looking below the surface to seek answers, and not being fooled by the reflection on the surface.One can never go wrong if you follow your heart.

    How beautiful. My daughter, who’s now 4, has loved the moon ever since she could look up at the sky and she quickly got to know the various phases and loved the crescent and full moon most. Her love of the moon opened up my heart and to “follow it” as you so beautifully wrote.

    Gorgeous and soulful — and isn’t it interesting that the moon always seems to follow you, too?

    I love the splashes of light in the swirling darkness of the picture somehow saying that we are all of that…darkness and light combined. Thanks for sharing. ♥
