Tea Leaf Readings

I have a cup full of tea leaves
that my story, it is suppose to
hold.

I don't know if I believe this
but the cup is lovely enough
I should at least listen as it is
told.

Gripped tightly the handle was
as it was spun around. 

Stopping on a drip as the tea 
leaves settle without ever the 
slightest sound.

Lovely scent of tea is in the air 
and even though the aroma is 
sweet. I am wondering what is 
written in there.

A heavy question stayed in tow.
Should I stay? or Should I go?

Just wanted to let you know that I will be in two new anthologies I was asked to be a part of on Domestic Violence with Teresa Hawley Howard in Texas. One will be out in August and another in October. Things have picked up for me on the writing scene since we last spoke. Hope all is going well with your new books too. If they are out please let me know where I can find them. Thanks, Sharon : )

Hello Sharon, A really meaningful write here for sure. I liked your use of the "Tea Leaf" metaphor here very much. It grips the reader from beginning to the end. Excellent!! Cheers and Best, Gary
