TEA TAKES TIME
Three hundred teacups allow me to use my time wisely, constructively.
When I work quietly and hidden, my slow busy hands distill reason with clarity.
Every teacup is secured to its saucer.
Felted circles cut in small, medium, large, and extra large are securely attached to the bottom of each saucer.
Each teacup has a very strong hook, placed precisely and doubly secure,
concealed under the felt.
All the trunks, sturdy and clean, provide the storage for the teacups
which are neatly wrapped inside protective covers.
Now I get to finish writing all the wishes,
great prayers for all of us typed on tags with an old typewriter.
Perfect timing. I am ready to live in the light now.
Why rush this part, when, for over 6 years, this is what I have been longing for?
I will reside in this state for at least a year.
After which, I will have to attach each tag to a cup.
I wish to make that a ceremony of sorts.
I am both moved and grateful to all who offered their teacups. They are in good hands.
One day, I don’t know how or where, they will have a coming out party.
I don’t know the future of Reading Tea Leaves (2010-2017),
yet it is in my heart to know.
