Tea Leaf Tales: The Powers to Never Forget

Eyes flutter open without sight, but still see beauty.

A nose that no longer inhales, yet smells familiar scents of loved ones.

Thin skin so worn, its delicate surface is marred by dozens of scrapes and bruises. Your fingers still bend around mine.

Open and gasping for living breath, your voice utters words with the same soft tone.

The superficial holds no importance, only what is inside. And what lies inside is a wealth of wonderful decades, years, days, hours, and minutes. I hug you and wish I could travel inside with you. Then, I close my eyes, and I have the magic to see within. And the powers to never forget what I saw.

Tea Leaf Tales is a series of original ten-sentence short stories by Marsha A. Moore, relating to photos/scenes that resonate with her.
