Sagas Among the Arcana: More Haikus

The five of swords


At betrayals foot;

it revels in violence.

Vengeance, dethrone it.



Nine of cups


Finally, triumph

Happy days upon your gaze

Only at deceit’s cost



Four of cups


Gold blinds— still so fine,

Glittering vessels— empty,

Dangerous Splendor
