Measuring Time By the Mug

I am measuring time by the mug.

At first light,

Covers thrown back with a smile,

A loaded pot of coffee waits.

Brewed, poured over a butter pat,

Brain cells brighten.

Morning pleasures unfold and

Green sun tea companions me to noon.

An octave of hours

Lays open like a trunk of treasures

To be explored.

Herbal notes sound at quarters:

Ginger and Lemongrass.

The Tulsi pouch of Holy Basil.

Plucked Peppermint leaves.

Valerian and Passionflower

Precede the pillow.

Eyes closed, I dream journey

To tearooms, temples, towers of rock.

Transcending time, to truth, by the mug.

Yesterday, Deborah sent me this poem with the line, “This segment of time holds such opportunity: going deeper with words and no words, nature and inner nature, from doing to being!” It is my honor to share Deborah’s poem with my followers.  http://condolencecoach.blogspot.com/
