While I was doing some packing this morning, I came across this book on symbols, 1001 Symbols: An Illustrated Guide to Imagery and its Meaning, by Jack Tresidder. I flipped through and suddenly felt inspired! What if I used it as a writing prompt? Randomly select a symbol and use it to guide me. Oh! I sense some interesting writing pieces coming up!

A few days late since my little family and I are sick, but I’m so excited about my creative writing project using The Shadowscapes Tarot as a prompt! I’ve created a page on my site, Tarot Inspirations, where my goal is to post a writing piece alongside the art every Thursday. I’ll post it in my musings as well. I hope you enjoy it!
First Thursday Tarot Inspiration ~ May 3, 2013
I feel encouraged to keep working on poetry because of you, wonderful readers and followers! Thank you.
I basically fell into, nearly, writing a poem a day during National Poetry Month. I would like to both keep my momentum going and add a prompt. Enter, Stephanie Pui-Mun Law’s, The Shadowscapes Tarot.
Several years ago I came across this tarot deck while browsing a book store. I instantly fell in love with the art! I don’t use them formally or properly now a days for guidance or inspiration, as I did in my youth, but this deck in particular beckons me to write.
I’ve been granted permission by the artist, Stephanie Pui-Mun Law to share her work alongside my writing. Initially I wanted to draw a card and use it as a prompt to free-write something imaginative. Now, I’m leaning towards refining my haiku techniques and/or just letting them inspire however they might.
I’m not sure what, if any, time frame I want to encroach on this creative endeavor. With that being said however, I’d like to publish one Tarot Inspiration a week.
I’ll create a new page on my site to display these, as well as have them flow within my musings. Each piece of writing will be accompanied with the tarot card image and the website link to Stephanie Pui-Mun Law’s work. I encourage you to browse her art. I find it evocative, whimsical and beautiful!
I do not plan on including any formal information on the meaning of the tarot card. In fact, I do not remember any of their meanings. These cards will simply be used as a prompt!
I hope you will continue to follow me on this new creative journey!
