Tea Leaf Tales: The Turkey’s Feathered Tale

“Oh, dear me. I told him not to do it.”
This morning I heard him muttering, “A real turkey day with a live bird.”
Since then, I haven’t seen him. I called his phone with no luck. I fidgeted and waited for a response to the message I’d left. In the midst of near panick, wondering who to call, where to go, what to do, a Dickinson poem came to mind.
Hope is the thing with feathers
That perches in the soul
And sings the tune without the words
And never stops at all.
I smiled to myself and hummed the tune that came. There would be a tale to be told and laughed about and learned from round this Thanksgiving table.
