Monk's Tale

Kerry at the Imaginary Garden gave us a mini challenge, to write about a Monk's Tale.  I chose the freestyle method.  I do hope to try the Huitain  poem form,  another time.  






I sip a
 silent prayer
 steeped in memories
soul's thirst quenched
by a dance of calm nectar
embraced by solitude
 in a sea of downy pearls
I meditate on 1000 day Red Jasmine
 time for prayers of the heart
my spiritual duties
fill my day
just one cup
allows
reflection on
SereniTEA

  1. Ella, this made me smile....thinking of "sereniTEA." Now if you could produce and market such a tea, you would be a wealthy person. I enjoyed this, Ella.

  6. One of my faves of yours.....love the idea of sipping a prayer steeped in memories.......I LOVE the picture of the teacup with tree branches inside it. Wow. A tea shoppe would be so much fun! You could also sell your tea clotheslines and prayer flags and stuff. Tell him you'll set up shop in his garage. Muwahahaha.
