the color of autumn

day 19 of napowrimo: [tarot cards] the hanged man, upright

The hanged man understands that his position is a sacrifice that he needed to make in order to progress forward – whether as repentance for past wrongdoings, or a calculated step backward to recalculate his path onward. This time he spends here will not be wasted, he does this as part of his progression forward. His upside down state can also symbolize the feeling of those that walk a spiritual path, for they see the world differently.


the color of autumn 
     glows like weeping 
into a dream it’s
     a familiar arrival
the orange & yellow
     phosphenes shifting across
a forest exploding like
     confetti we are lighting
candles to celebrate 
     our losses so painful are the
things we return to 
     soil for warmth come winter
