I have a whole collection of miniature tea sets that I don’t have on display. They are cute and impractical but sometimes it is fun to look at them. I have an idea that I should gift them to my great niece someday.
Today I am sharing another cute teeny tiny set that makes me smile when I look at it. I think you will smile as well. Who doesn’t love penguins?
The Seven Cups of Tea
The first cup caresses my dry lips and throat,
The second shatters the walls of my lonely sadness,
The third searches the dry rivulets of my soul to find the stories of five thousand scrolls.
With the fourth the pain of past injustice vanishes through my pores.
The fifth purifies my flesh and bone.
With the sixth I am in touch with the immortals.
The seventh gives such pleasure I can hardly bear.
The fresh wind blows through my wings
