Tea for one is lots of fun
But twice as nice is Tea for two
When Tea for Two is me and you
Is it a verse? Is it a ditty? What about rhythmic prose or a tenuous haiku? How about a haibun? Could it be an ode or a lyric, a song or a sonnet? Is it an iambic pentameter or a dactylic hexameter? A shanty, a chant? A ballad, a strain? A vowel-chime, a word-mime, a hymn, a refrain?
Well, it’s some of those things and one of those things, all of those things and none of those things.
It is a poem, and I wrote it as a gift to my beautiful and lovely wife who loves tea. Oh, and then I singed it into this wooden cup and saucer for her as well.
The naked cup and saucer was a gift from a friend of ours, whose husband makes lots of amazing items out of wood. They have provided a few more items for me to scorch and sell. So keep your eyes peeled as exciting, unusual new things will be coming soon.
