Serving Tea

Written for:  Imaginary Gardens With Real Toads
“The Way of Tea” – Pick one of the tea studies to write about.

“When you serve tea to your guests, you should simply serve tea from your heart, and think about nothing more.”

Clear all thoughts
except the pleasing scent
of jasmine.
Smile at guests,
do not intrude with your words.
As they sip, feel warmth.

I am a freelance poet, born and bred in Brooklyn, New York. I live with my husband, John, and two charming rescue dogs–Marion Miller and Murphy. We spent eight lovely years in Portland, OR, but are now back in New York. My goal is to create and share poetry with others who write, or simply enjoy reading poetry. I hope to touch a nerve in you, and feel your sparks as well.
