The Diving Poet’s deck is fun to play with, especially if poetry is a skill of yours. The set’s unique theme makes it stand out from a standard deck of playing cards, and the deck’s images lend themselves well to both solo and group play.
If you’re looking to play some tarot or rune cards, you might want to check out the new Divining Poets tarot deck. It’s a stand-alone deck, so you don’t need the accompanying book. Two Cats Studio does the illustrations, and this deck has a more airy, fairytale-Esque feel than a lot of decks out there.
This deck is created by the author Jalal Al-Din Rumi, series editor David Trinidad, and the translator Brad Gooch.
Jalal Al-Din Rumi was raised in Central Asia in 1207. He formed the mystic Sufi command known as the Whirling Dervishes, who practiced spiritual devotion through dance and music. He died in 1273, and his burial site in Konya, Turkey, is still revered today.
Brad Gooch, an acclaimed author of Smash Cut, Flannery, and City Poet, wrote Rumi’s Secret, the first prevalent biography of Rumi, which was authored in 2017 to critical praise by HarperCollins.
Maryam Mortaz is an Iranian-American writer, translator, and author of Pushkin and Other Stories, a book of short stories.

Divining Poets Deck Review
Persian speakers frequently tell their fortunes and seek life advice by selecting lines at random from their traditional poets. Brad Gooch discovered why while working on Rumi’s Secret, his biography of the wisest poet of all time, as well as Rumi: Invisible Poems, his upcoming Everyman’s Library collaborative book of translations. Rumi always urgently tells us what we all want to know on the journey of our lives in haunting, deity, luminous words, trying to speak soul-to-soul with cosmic intimacy.
A display stand is included, and an instruction card with tips on using the deck.
