Tea Leaf Tales: A New Gazing Ball


You are gone from me in one form, but always with me in another. Without being able to see and touch and care for you, my life has been rearranged.
I open my eyes and see a view of the world that is new to me. It still sparkles and even has new wonders. Things I passed by thousands of times now hold me fascinated.
I hear you whisper in my ear, asking, “Do you like your new gazing ball? It’s my gift to you.”
 “I was used to working hard to find the hidden beauty in the old one. I got very good at that.” I swallow hard and say, “But because you gave so much for me to have this, I know I’ll enjoy your special gift.”
 
Tea Leaf Tales is a series of original ten-sentence short stories by Marsha A. Moore, relating to photos/scenes that resonate with her.

'Seeking a Tribe' there on the right hand side looked so intriguing, I had to swing by amazon & purchase it. I have a huge to-read list on my kindle, though. :( Gotta keep 'em in line, too, or I get all messed up w/ scheduled blog tours / reviews!
Looking forward to it.

Thanks lots, Terri! My to-be-read list is scary too.
