Zero

fool tarot card s

I always draw the Fool card.  Zero.  Nothing and everything.  It becomes whatever is added to it, but if it is multiplied, it returns to itself.  Dividing it is impossible.

My life has been a patchwork, unpredictable. The best laid plans always come up with new ways to fall apart.  Sometimes this is a good thing, but I never know if that’s true until later.

What lies ahead? Be
careful not to chase your fear–
leap before you look.

An April Fool haibun for the dVerse prompt on Monday which I missed, and for Colleen’s #TankaTuesday poets-choice-of-words.  I’m also linking to dVerse Open Link Night.

    I love the line “Leap before you look”, I’ve done that a few times in my life (haha)…I wouldn’t change a thing. Your collage says it all for April 1.

    Such gaiety and fun in the collage … and I enjoyed the insights on zero and sense of wildness (a reality in my life) in the poem.
