Second Cup

Second Cup

A second cup of tea
to steep reality
the first cup drained
with departing dreams

and so it ever seems
unanchored minutes, hours
sipping wisdom from words
sweet nectar stirred into
the heart and mind

distill, assimilate, simmer
psalms, poems, couplets, rhymes
the sun may flare its own set time
I drink slowly, savor mine…
