If you ask Zen people they will say tea is not
something that you pour
with unawareness and drink like any other drink.
It is not a drink, it is meditation; it is a prayer.
So they listen to the kettle creating a melody,
and in that listening they become more silent;
It is the season of feeling blessed with the bounty
from the garden and the fruit stand.
Enjoy and savor each and everyday.
