sun – shower – light – rain – (beat – long breath) I smile
so in utter simplicity I tried to achieve depth like haiku impact, that is what came to me in my head, all this when writing this… all this was swirling in my noggin, well, maybe not swirling but actually coalescing… and yes, I meant “light rain” as the sun (light) in showers (rain).. 2 lines of the same but not, it was pouring, I thought/wrote this in the midst that is the nature of a sun shower… the strangeness of the phenomena always makes me smile… comprende ?
your thoughts ? (I mean you did get this far, right?)
a cup of tea, for one just the thought of an actual formal tea set brings pause, brings calm but I have never met, such an instance just on the tele, as they say the tea-totalers, that is our neighbors once lords and ladies; and why do I not think of japan a barrier of language, perhaps
I was thinking the day was dreary but I looked up and there is sun the mix of peppermint and honey on my tongue is like a sauna, the sun draws out the steam fills in, I can imagine the release of water evaporating on the rocks the audible nature of transformation
I am glad tea is not instant or at least not mine directions, steep for awhile time to contemplate a pause, a calm
notes… am I drinking more tea these days? well, yes, yes I am, maybe it is a ritual that will keep my head on straight in these crazy days, I have tried talismans of various sorts but right now tea seems to be the brakes I need on speeding forward…
