    So often as I traverse these rocky cliffs
    to find the ocean below,
    I’m reminded of the unnumbered card,
    The Fool.

    The Fool traipses happily
    at the precipice of a cliff,
    with his satchel and magic staff in hand,
    looking foolish for walking so near a steep drop off.

    Maybe the thing missing from the card
    is what he alone can see below:
    the ocean,
    calling, welcoming, beckoning,
    his first stop on a new adventure.
