Tea World

Tea Poems

Tea Meditation

While the tea steeps

I meditate with eyes closed

Upright on a meditation cushion

Filled with buckwheat hulls

Made by the mindful hand of a Buddhist monk.


I let the tea steep for five minutes

While thinking only about the steam

That flows from the savory tea cup

That rises from the peaceful tea gardens

Above the leafy green Chinese field.
