For breakfast I eat up my vowels, my a e i o u, to which I add from consonants a fricative or two;
After that I move my bowels then write as poets do, and frequently am quite surprised to feel a trill come through.

Kılıçlar'ın Dokuzu (nine of swords)

A little bit of Turkish: Kılıç (sword) Dokuz (nine)

Doğru söyleyeni dokuz köyden kovarlar.

Speak the truth, and be dismissed from nine villages.

Turkish Proverb

The image on the left is from a 1910 pack of the Tarot cards produced by Pamela Colman Smith and Arthur Edward Waite. For a modern reproduction I recommend the Pamela Colman Smith Commemorative Set

Please feel free to use the comments to add your own reflections upon this card and how it may be read.
