[Poetry] High Tea

I sit to sup
With a meal and tea
I bask in its sweet aroma
As I take a sip,
Weight of day’s troubles
Fall off with my coat.
My family sits beside me
Oh, what a blessing they be
We talk of our day
Just passing the time
Of school/ work/ every which thing.
I know this can’t last
But I pray it does
I know no happiness
If any of this were less.

[Poetry] Gathering

Some lemonade and tea
Perhaps some will mix it together
And make lemon tea.
The banana croquettes are sweet
While there’s mellow meat,
Our glasses rise
Not a tear fills our eyes
All of us together
A wondrous treasure.
I see this scene
Every night in my dreams
It brings a smile to my face
All the pain, it’ll erase!
