Today is a Green Day
Today is a green day. For tea, I mean.
The green will fill the gaps in between.
Green is full of life and light.
Green gently stirs the seedling’s might.
Tomorrow may be a black tea day.
I’m never sure until it’s underway.
Black tea warms my soul and feet.
Black tea inspires the artist’s heat.
A nice oolong is for moment’s mirror.
And conversation as friends draw nearer.
I save pu-erh for special desire.
Of earth and air and and water and fire.
Then to my humble knees I go.
To imbibe the sacred from long ago.
And last, for special celebration.
A white tea for our confirmation.
To tea I give my heartfelt praise.
To life and love, unfettered days.
