for dVerse Quadrille

Tasseomancy

I.
In a teacup where leaves
twirl a dervish in golden fluid
of circular skirts,
rolling and roiling from
a devotional pot of clay
deeply red from where
life began evergreen,
and fortunes foretold
from depths of bone china,
tranquil tea.
A gypsy’s fortune told.

II.
In a teacup where
leaves twirl a dervish in
fluid like a circular skirt,
roiling from a devotional pot,
a tranquil tea,
a gypsy’s fortune.

In your skirts of whispering
crinolines, your silver and
turquoise, and
bracelets of braided hair,
tell me of love.

  1. How beautiful, Misky. I loved watching the diminishing of the first one, to provide the word count for II’s second half…like watching tea leaves break off and become a whole new brew.
