Wind of responsibility –

Immediately lost in cleaning.

Take off the belt,

profundity apotheosis dehydrates doubts.

The Asemic Tarot – new Blog

Asemic Tarot cards are distinctive in non-being. There is no accurate meaning/interpretation for any card, nor is there any formal layout. The ranking is capricious, as is the size and shape; they do not fit any standard. The names are a blend of real and alternative languages using a mix of cultures and symbols.

I have created a new blog, Asemic Tarot. As the title suggests, it will feature just Asemic Tarot compositions and related work. I considered deleting all Tarot posts on this blog, but considering likes & comments, it was simpler to create a home page on the new blog that had links to all the Tarot posts. All future Asemic Tarot compositions will be on the new blog – Asemic Tarot 20 has been posted.


To be honest, I almost gave up in frustration -WordPress does not make it easy to initiate & navigate a new blog. I may have missed some (hidden) icon/step – whatever it was, it took me a very long time to get things going. I will, no doubt, have to rejig layout & links in the near future.



As a reminder, and for those unfamiliar with my other blogs, here are their links:

Dark Pines Media – my 1st blog, started when I was teaching. It was concerned with Media Literacy, the teaching of the subject, and the societal impact of Mass Media. I still sporadically post on this blog. *** When I first set this up, there was a great foof-rah about teachers having blogs & students accessing blogs at school. Shortly after my wife & I retired, the school had a Twitter account – staff members had been using Facebook to organize Alumni Events for some time.


Dark Pines Photo – photography and creative expression blog, that has come to concentrate on photography & monochrome photography. My earliest experiments in collage scanography & digital art can be found here, along with experiments in poetry & fantasy/weird fiction.




Kanski Zoo – a blog set up by wife, that we share. It features photos of our pets & travels around the Elliot Lake area.


Asemic Tarot – unlike the other blogs, this one opens on the home page, which has background for newcomers. Most of the links are to pages on Implied Spaces.

My wife organized & runs a community theatre group for Special Needs community members. Due to Covid, it is presently on pause – you can view photos, and learn more about them at their blog – Elliot Lake Roundabout Exceptional Puppeteers.

Hope you find this of interest. Let me know if there are any glitches on the new blog, or the others for that matter. Many Thanks. JPK

Asemic Postcard 104 with postage

Hiérophante ~

The wasted acerbic arcade seals a ghost. Notably, the table banks the complete sigil, and the naughty anthology cries past a corroded contoured corsage. The fiercely fluttering faerie freedom butters a wood wraith. The delicious paste cracks a darling delicate whole – capillaceous ossein eleuin pervasively. Be advised to navicular dugong whillikers dishearteningly before the arrival of a legislatorial frostworks quandary.

As always, The Magician

Asemic Tarot Card Reading – 18 & 31

#18 Through the Looking Glass

United by a concentration in grace and warmth that mirrors certain true messages without admiration for the prose trance of those works –
They’re, rather, shabby- suited dopes’ image, pretentious morons who’ve glued their self-righteousness to a floral simulacrum that resembles nothing.
Each has a mob skeleton inside covered with a transparent material. No wonder art can hear the beats of The Palmer. Their hearts beat as human hearts are breathed. Yet they crave some Brazilian Jazz & Hope for the future. ~ A society, now broken with falsehoods, weeps as justice is thwarted yet again.



#31 seeing U, seeing eye

Read it in his face  ~Each has a mob skeleton inside covered with a transparent material.

It may be strange the day we depart and know that we are creatures of the air. Eye dew hope all these people today are loving others and feeling as we felt when growing up.

Cut from my perspective it to my true.
Cut from thee sensibility no up
This that his carefully, yet I teach of
My love toward others all in thy hair.

Asemic Tarot Card 91 – QRZ~UyoDJF

The king dreams he is a king,
And in this delusive way
Lives and rules with sovereign sway;
All the cheers that round him ring,
Born of air, on air take wing.
And in ashes (mournful fate!)
Death dissolves his pride and state:
Who would wish a crown to take,
Seeing that he must awake
In the dream beyond death’s gate?


‘Tis a dream that I in sadness
Here am bound, the scorn of fate;
‘Twas a dream that once a state
I enjoyed of light and gladness.
What is life? ‘Tis but a madness.
What is life? A thing that seems,
A mirage that falsely gleams,
Phantom joy, delusive rest,
Since is life a dream at best,
And even dreams themselves are dreams –

Translation of end of Act 2 Life is A Dream 

by Pedro Calderón de la Barca 1636.
