Vintage Monday: Tasseography

fortunetelling_102416

The fluidity of feeling overflows in a maelstrom
spun around in cycles of choices swirling
dreams of love, passion, creativity, success
at the bottom of a chipped teacup
she cradles in her hands, bringing its rim
to her lips as though this herbal elixir
contains the calm to all her existential qualms.
