Poem - Cards Were Played

“Cards Were Played” is about the lots cast with the people in our lives.


Cards Were Played

The cards were played in tableau
the possible arrayed in rows
with the past conjoined to present day
future implied in all its shades

cardboard, colors, rectangles
mixed with designs of mankind
focus turns from inward out
on the table, reflecting mind

perhaps they’re people or something more
intention stated or just felt
energies focused to see much more
the veil extending beyond four walls

archetypes present a crowd
each role extends an eager hand
asking for their credit due
as the fates are now pursued

now the chance has been set
the possible conveyed to mortal man
cards of doom or cards of bless
they represent the full balance.
