Monday's Tea Quote

I am sitting in the blue chair listening to this stillness.
The only sound the occasional gurgle of tea
coming out of the pot and into the cup.
How can this be?
Such calm, such peace, such solitude
in this world of woe.
~from The Sixth of January by David Budbill
as collected in Good Poems, ed by Garrison Keillor

I love this tea quote, Marilyn.....and you have a blue chair to go with it, I may use this quote sometime, as I have a blue couch too. : ) This is a lovely picture of you.
