Tea Notes

My hands entwine   †
the Yunnan Gold † † † †
cupped in † † †  
potteryís simple charm † † †  
elixir red † † † †
and amber strains † † † †
nascent light † † † †
before the dawn † † † †
fragrance of † † † †
the Nations past † † †  
wrapped in each † † † †
unfurling leaf † † †  
binding all † † †  
humanity † † † †
† † † †
A lilting dance † † †  
upon my tongue † † † †
every taste  †
Is reparation † † † †
tossing thought † † †  
to distant shores † † †  
dissolving † † † †
as the foam at sea † † †  
a meditation † † † †
in my tea † † †  
† † † †
The leaf imparts † † †  
its mysteries † † † †
parameters † † † †
begin to fall † † † †
replaced by † † †  
perfect symmetry † † † †
purely formed † † †  
geometry † † † †
the blessed gift † † † †
within our hands † † †  
a glimpse of † † † †
what our world † † † †
could be... † † †  
† † † †
Awakening from † † † †
contemplation † † † †
I am poised † † † †
for conversation †
