These two poems are based on a Fantasy character I have had in my head for several years now. To give you a brief insight: Jadiam is a legend. He has been around – or known

– for centuries, millenia even. He is like ‘The Fool’ of the Tarot: he goes his own way, cares for no-one, does and says things that can seem obtuse, arrogant, crazy, senseless. Last time he was around, he helped to save the world against the ‘evil’ (details of the book not finalised yet – Jadiam just hangs round in my head!). However, it is not guaranteed whose, if anyone’s, he is on. He is totally independent, mysterious, human-shaped but seemingly alien in thought, manner and deed. He comes and goes as he will, and maybe he will tell you why he’s here, maybe not. But his appearances are linked with some worldly trauma happening.

How can a human be millenia old? That’s Jadiams secret…

His legend has been passed down for generations….


Soulfire (Jadiam)

From when did the Storm-fires come?
In which age were they born?
Under which God dawned the new age sun ?
In what caves was the Havoc wrought?

Darkness remembers everything,
Daylight nothing at all,
But in down the tunnels no birds sing
Where Un-humans rule.

Jadiam, make your peace,
Afore the Solstice sun,
Let your scourging temper cease
Before the killings come.

Fire and ash, plague and death,
Our grand-folks tell the tale,
Jadiam rise from lands of West –
We call on you to prevail.

 LEGEND (Jadiam)

Jadiam rides from lands of South,
Word passes quicker mouth to mouth.
Unbelieving many scorn
Until Black Dragon is Reborn.

Jadiam’s beast, warrior fierce
Ne’er seen over five hundred years.
Fear and hope mingle, merge
As Jadiam’s signs on Horizon converge.

  1. A very interesting blog. I have a 100 year old plus desk of tarot cards. They are beautiful. I like the artwork of the old desks. I love myth and story. This tale was amazing.

  2. Like this quite a lot:
    Darkness remembers everything,
    Daylight nothing at all


    Also, just to tell you the The Fool is my favorite Taro card.

    • 🙂 ‘0’ : total, complete, the beginning and the end.
      I imagine you would like Jadiam as well… A Law unto Himself, choosing when, if at all, to help humanity. Keeping his own council, unless he chooses not to, for various reasons that may not be obvious… enlightening from the angle of a storm.
      Maybe one day he will live outside my head!
