All We Need is a Cosy - Poetry by Susan Patterson

All We Need is a Cosy
I am the leaves.
You are the pot.
I give you joy

All We Need is a Cosy

I am the leaves.

You are the pot.

I give you joy

And you steep my

Passion, first to hold

And then to gently pour out.

 

I unfurl and twirl and

Swirl about, while you

Subtly contain me

And together we blend

And have the makings of what

The world might call a

Honey-sweet tea of love.

The tea pot and the tea cup discussed here are used as a
metaphor for friends or a couple. Both the cup and the pot have a purpose
to fulfill and a task to do. The world of tea is steeped with many examples
of how to live a good life. Happy tea times!   skp
