are percolating 
in my brain
but are not yet ready 
to be poured.

swirling
to the top
and then sinking 
to the bottom

like tea leaves
waiting 
for the psychic
to read them

  4. Fun! I am finding that this challenge is helping me percolate some ideas too. Now, I must ask - have you ever had your tea leaves read?

    1. Nope. I didn't even intend to talk about tea leaves when I first put words on the page. They just seemed to appear

  5. Great way to express your words - I like how you seemed let them float on the page.

  8. The way the visual/spatial arrangement of the letters matches your metaphor tickles me. Everything fits together just right in this poem.

  10. Just right, Deb, but this seems mysterious too. Is something really brewing?
