Tea leaves

Megha's World

marco-secchi-543132-unsplashThey say you can find 

your destiny in the tea leaves

sticking at the bottom of the cup

encircling and leaving patterns 

easy to deciphered and 

encoded

making the patterns 

that zig-zag mesh

resembling the events in your life

Marking your ups and downs 

and earmarking

all the important events

which make them truly shine

It’s an art they say

pure talent

so sublime

I wonder

I gaze with a child-like 

wonder

my mouth agape in

excitement 

and horror at the same time

How mere broken leaves 

from a plant forgotten,

can seamlessly 

narrate my story

when you so conveniently

ignore the scars the 

time has left on me.
