Tea Leaves

Tea leaves spinning inside a cup,
Swirling, dancing, painting a portrait—
A normal morning: quiet and serene,
Before the hustle begins.

Rinse and repeat; the leaves change—
The dance remains the same.
A normal morning: calm and peaceful;
The twirling leaves paint a different…

A murky vision of time unknown,
A normal morning: erased and unwanted.
Take the tranquility and smash the cup.
The seeping leaves spell a new beginning.
