Do you often wish,
that the future ahead,
you could surely foretell;
knowing every step?
I stare at the tea leaves
willing it to reveal its secrets,
I swirl my cup gingerly
but nothing comes up.
I am not a psychic
waiting on tea leaves to tell secrets,
I possess no crystal ball
to peek and tell the future.
What would life be
if everything is known?
For the fun of living
is to unwrap each day.
Let me ask a pertinent question, have you ever had your tea leaves or coffee grounds read for you? I am curious.

i never have, but i’m always curious –
No I am an old cynic but once a bedraggled old woman screwed her eyes up pointed a gnarly finger and squealed ” you girl won’t see your 3 score years” though I do not believe I was pretty worried on the run up to my 60 th birthday.
I’d rather know what’s coming next. LOL
Those last two lines were perfect.
I have never had tea leaves or coffee grounds read. Sometimes its better not to know. 🌼
“the fun of living is to unwrap each day” I love that concept as well as the picturesque way you said it. Very nice.
Even if there was a way to find out about the future,I wouldn’t.
Mysterious adventure is my type.
Me too. I think life would lose its flavour if we knew all the answers. Thank you for stopping by 🙂

I don’t want to know. I love the wild ride:
Wonderful piece, Jacqui. I would rather not know. I like life’s surprises – most of the time. 🙂
I don’t think i’d wan’t to know what my future holds. There’s a certain excitement that comes with not knowing
