Answers - Poem by Viola Grey

Searching for answers in my teacup,
looking deep into the tarot dealers lines,
searching stars, numbers and magical runes,
maybe... I should just search your eyes.

    I like this very simple verse with a deepness 'searching stars'
    and eyes are such mystical symbols of themselves. Very intense
    and yet restrained with its forthcoming revelation.

    I agree with Sathya... Small is beautiful - but a guy would, wouldn't he! (Report) Reply

    Small is beautiful. So expressive in few is a lesson to budding poets.
