Tea Gathering Sunday

Once a month or more the Wu-Wo Tea Ceremony group meets for tea.
On the past Sunday afternoon we met on the lawn at the Hillsboro Public Library.
Normally I take a book of readings to share at the end of tea time.
This time the book was forgotten at home.
While I waited for the group to arrive I wrote my first haiku.

Thanks, David for the inspiration.
Thanks, Stephanie for the photo.
Thanks, group for listening to my first attempt.

Good library tea time
Cloudy skies do belie us
Today friends do share.

It was a lovely afternoon of tea.

Summer afternoon..
Drinking tea with poetry..
Life is beautiful.

Loved your first Haiku.

Lorrie said...

Tea on the lawn, with poetry. What can be better than that?

Mary said...

That's a great Haiku - and it looks like you were relaxing perfectly at the library park.

I just had a cuppa with Bob - made a peach and blueberry cake and a small slice was perfect on this much cooler and almost sunless day.

Love, Mary

This lovely gathering fondly reminds me of the Wu Wo Ceremony you and Steph shared in Ohio. Wonderful!

This is a little late, but... Great work!! I'm so pleased my little project helped inspire you. If you had fun with this one, I hope you keep it up!
