The crystal ball

As I reflect the telescope
to look ahead for signs of hope
 through the lense, the remote near floats

 Picture on the mantle slate
memories chalice, of the past relates
held behind transparent plate

 Glazing of, the past bygones
clouded now opaque, too soon abscond
not molted drops the furnace shone

Myself in desperation seek
could mystic presence bring relief
for silver coin the cost is cheap

A gypsy, fortune tellers claim
a crystal ball, illuminate, or dark remain?
a study, tomorows hopes pertained

In the orb my destiny was cast
clouds unfold in hope and find pizzaz?
a ticket to a life that boast first class

My glass half empty or half full with cheer
the one way mirror of the seer
shows life is never crystal clear
