Joker - on Lorraine's book

Last night I finished Lorraine's book. Her topic was about "other worlds, fantasy, alter-egos...." The drawing I did was on my mind since the day I read her post about the topic. This has a lot to do with Tarot and two books I like: A book of fireside poems, Solitaire mystery. Here's my own encounter of Joker:
He waived his hands and murmured "shooo", all of a sudden dozens of flies flew away from the back of my head. My vision changed, my mind cleared, my senses heightened. I began to hear a poem sung to me within. "Once I planted some potatoes in my garden fair and bright; Unelated long I waited, and no sprout appeared in sight. But my "peachblows" in the cellar, on the cold and grimy flag, all serenely sprouted greenly in an ancient paper bag". Then my Joker friend laughed a thunder-like laughter and began to sing. "When I think on the happy days I spent wi' you, my dearie; and now what lands between us lie, how can I be but errie. How slow ye move, ye heavy hours, as ye were wae and weary! It was na sae ye glinted by when I was wi' my dearie." I blinked and he was back to my beloved deck of cards in no time. I had no idea these two poems/songs would one day became the love stories of my life. My Joker friend had just showed me a movie running backward......

I had a great time with Moly_x_10 group members!
