The Dark Knight of the Soul Journey


Day 14 of the Soul Card journey
with Elizabeth Crawford at Soul's Music
Soul Cards by Deborah Koff-Chapin at http://www.touchdrawing.com/


Traveler encounters
a Dark Knight
on her journey
of seeking
White Knights,
Blue Skies
and Questing Hearts.

With outstretched
hand,
he invites her
closer.
Somehow she
fails to see
the sharpened sabre 
in his
other hand.
Her instinct
warns her:
this way lies
danger.
But his honeyed words
convince her
to ignore her
inner voice.
Hopefully,
she steps up and
 accepts his hand.

She encounters
mortal wounds,
thus,
not once,
but more than once,
for the
teaching
is repeated
until the
lesson is learned.

Traveler
resumes her journey
wiser, and alone,
until the best
and most devoted
companion of her life,
a wise black wolf,
appears,
to dog
her steps and
keep her
from all harm.

    Indeed, this is so.

  3. Sherry, I like what you found in this card, and you are so right about the lesson being repeated until it is leaned. Thanks for this one,

  4. Some lessons are hard to learn, indeed. Thank goodness your journey led you to the wolf dog who healed your spirit and stayed to share the road with you...:)
