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
