House of Cards



see your future in lines etched into your hands


see it in tea leaves scattered in water


see it in a crystal ball


a pack of cards.


I've always been obsessed with finding fate.



fortune tellers, for what do I wait.



and Chamki has inspired me to make a set of my own tarot cards



using photoshop, stock photos, my photos, scans, doodles, found objects



and archetypal symbols I've set out.



only done 10/78. a long way to go.



but there's always time.

I'd like to say I like
The way you see the cards
Tarot is just a tool
That focuses the mind's eye
I'd like to continue this poem
I'm really getting into the groove
But I'm afraid I'll be bested
By this guy who calls himself Dhruv...
:D
All in good humour folks...please not to be offended :)
