The first cup moistens my lips and throat;

The second cup breaks my loneliness;

The third cup searches my barren entrail but to find therein some thousand volumes of odd ideographs;

The fourth cup raises a slight perspiration-all the wrongs of life pass out through my pores; At the fifth cup I am purified;

The sixth cup calls me to the realms of the immortals.

The seventh cup-ah, but I could take no more! I only feel the breath of the cool wind that raises in my sleeves.

Where is Elysium? Let me ride on this sweet breeze and waft away thither.

~Lu T’ung

When you’re feeling sad & blue 
And have no clue what to do 
Sit down and have a cup of tea 
And a hug or two or maybe three 
Feel those troubles melt away 
And start you on a better day.

Fragrant tea leaves twirl, bow, rest. 

Hushed applause. . .my smile”

Boiling, brewing, steep
The aroma drifts up slow
Finally, I drink.

Rich dark liquid
Isles of Japan in a cup
Scalding, healing, brew.
