Tea-Inspired Poetry

by Jasper Hermans


Grateful
Running, 
Tumbling, 
Falling. 

I sit down, and take a sip.

Wind, 
Blazing, 
Howling. 

I sit down, and take a sip. 

Waves, 
Crashing,
Rumbling. 

I sit down, and take a sip. 

Grateful, 
For the teachings of Great Nature. 
I embrace 
Everything that is.

In Every Cell
Seated 
Ancient sounds 
Humming kettle 

Emptiness 
Within the vessels 
Within our hearts 

These leaves guide us 
To the forest 
Behind these leaves 

Mother Earth 
Is present 
In every cell 

In Every Step
To drink tea, or to sweep the floor.
That is not the question.
As in sweeping the floor, there is drinking tea.
And in drinking tea, there is sweeping the floor.
In flowing along with the river of this universe,
without a longing and desire to change its course,
I'm walking on this path together with many.
Together with every other being that acts in harmony
with the Divine.
We are radiating light; 
we are peaceful warriors.
Let's hold hands,
dear sisters and brothers,
and walk on together,
enjoying every step.
