Carpe Diem #580, The Wheel of Fortune (May 2013) reprise

Dear Haijin, visitors and travelers,

We have arrived at our next "stop" along memory lane Carpe Diem Haiku Kai. We are now in May 2013. In that month we had all prompts related to Tarot and the "Great Arcana". That month we explored the Great Arcana of the Tarot and tried to link it to Christianity, because of the history of the Tarot. The Tarot once was created as a kind of Bible for the people who couldn't buy a Bible.
Through the years the Tarot became involved in the occult world and that did me decide to try to bring back the Tarot to it's Christian meaning and that's what we did in May 2013. The "reprise prompt" for today is The Wheel of Fortune. The Wheel of Fortune is card X of the Great Arcana. You can find that episode HERE.

This Carpe Diem Month was a great success and I compiled all the articles about the various cards of the Great Arcana to one article and re-formed it into a little book. One of the haiku which I wrote in this "The Wheel of Fortune" episode was the following:

Well it was really a joy to have "The Wheel of Fortune" in our "reprise" month for our second anniversary. To close this episode I will share "The Wheel of Fortune"card.

The Wheel of Fortune (X) - card from the Rider-Waite-Smith deck, the original Tarot deck.
This episode will be open for your submissions tonight at 7.00 PM (CET) and will remain open until October 14th at noon (CET). I will try to post our next episode, Hanabi or Fireworks (June 2013), later on. For now have fun ... let the history of Carpe Diem Haiku Kai be your inspiration.
