Drinking Tea

I sit down at my table

And I take the warm cup of tea

It’s cold outside — as cold as it could be

And I look at my tea

Brown, sensuous whirlpool


And outside — a car goes by and a

woman walks nigh

And a cat meows and a dog barks

And a cloud stops high

And the winds blow

As the planet cycles around the Sun

with all its oceans and mountains


And the comets whizz about

And the stars are born and die

As the galaxies turn around

Milky Way, Andromeda and BILLIONS of others


I am lost in the cosmos

But somewhere, somehow I am

Sitting at a table drinking tea in the universe

Knowing that we share the same origin and destiny

But it happened to be tea and I am happened to be me
