When you sit and look
into your cup of tea
what do you see
when it is finished?
Years ago, fortune tellers
would predict our future
by looking at the pattern of the leaves
resting at the bottom of the cup.
Tea bags now mean that we
throw away our tea leaves
before we drink our tea,
leaving no clues, no predictions.
So, as you gently dispose
of your tea bag today,
take a moment to imagine your future
and how your story will unfold.
