Queen of Cups

Image result for queen of cups

A well that never runs dry
no matter the heat of summer.
A clear creek's moonlit murmur.
A rain-on-the-window sigh.
She splits the stone of time
and wears its shards between her shoulders.
Should you be lucky and behold her,
sip from her cup and be wise!

I loved the murmur bit, the rain-on-the-window sigh, and so much more.

I thought it was gonna be about bosoms and brassieres. Queen of cups? Shows what I know.

A rain-on-the-window sigh... Love that! There certainly needs to be a flood of wisdom.

I love this especially "She splits the stone of time and wears its shards between her shoulders." Thank you for the lovely prompt, MZ ❤️

Wisdom sipping should become a national pastime.

A Chardonnay perhaps, with a note or two of Avalonian apples. (Or was that Everclear?)

Hi Mom Z, running late but I had to come see how the headmaster dealt with the card she drew. She did great, now to catch a glimpse of her and draw from her cup. Wise lady, was this rigged or was it your first draw. I love writing for the prompt. Thank you.

Sorry it took so long to visit and respond to this prompt. - This is quintessential Mama Zen - taking words and making art with them! Stellar response. Loved it.
