Week #11 - Gwendolyn Brooks

So this week another poet card was drawn. I continue to be amazed at the appearance of the Poet cards as opposed to the Suits which greatly outnumber the Poet cards.

Gwendolyn Brooks makes her appearance this week.

The Queen of Muses, Brooks impresses me as a more earthy influence then Plath of this past week. A bit of a counter balance.

I have to ask myself this week how I can bring a voice of tolerance, victims of injustice, the poor, people whose voices are often lost or drowned out by the everyday grind of life?

*Side Note:  A new Tarot Card was added to the deck today before this drawing. Pablo Neruda has joined the poets. At some future point I can count on drawing his card.
