Tea + Poetry

The kettle is screaming

and I am pouring  words

onto heated pages

While the

stringed bag steeps

My words

like the steaming liquid

brew strong

then turn deep

Present

Time

Inviting or elusive

Fleeting, then enduring

Bold and purposeful like a soldier marching forward

Or languid and slow allowing dreamers to catch up

Gathers and separates

Organizes and heals

It steals from us

While gifting life’s greatest lesson

The importance of staying

present

First

I am not the first to find love

or to have felt hatred

to be lost and then found

cry only to laugh uncontrollably

have the answer and then know nothing at all

ask why, then understand

stand strong while losing ground

sin

beg for mercy

find determination amongst discouragement

remember to forget

bear witness while ignoring others

be afraid to be brave

then be brave while feeling afraid

show gratitude

throw stones

smile through the bruising

find redemption

I wont be the last
