The Fool


FOOL Marseille Tarot
from the Marseille Tarot
illustrated by Jean Dodal
FOOL Rider-Waite Tarot
from the Rider-Waite Tarot
illustrated by Pamela Colman Smith

The Fool steps out - sely - on a quest
From ground zero, circling empty space
Always returning to the point of departure.

Or is it a joker - what a card! -
Who tricks us into thinking
There is somewhere to get to

Other than HERE, somewhere else to be?
Always a new game, a fresh adventure,
Perhaps to wed a giant's daughter.

Who is the Keeper of the Gate?
"On the first day of the year, the gate is mine
To open and to step through into the World".
