A poem about my name!

It’s a real treat to get anything by snail mail these days. When that envelope in the mail contains a poem, that’s a double treat. When that poem is from our own Tabatha Yeatts and it celebrates one’s own name, that’s a treat in multiples!

Tabatha sent me this poem about violets for round one of the summer poem swap. I learned history about my name that I never knew (and was inspired to be a better violet.)

Thank you, Tabatha, for organizing this summer poem swap, and for composing and sending this treasure!

Next week the round-up is hosted by Tabatha Yeatts. In honour of National Macaroni and Cheese Day on July 14th, next week’s roundup will have an optional Mac-N-Cheese theme (I’m drooling already)!

"An Offer of Tea"

Tea-a-tete

I steep in your presence
your interest draws from me
thoughts I had stashed

We brew a future
infused with possibility
fragrant with hope

cosy in each others company
our dreams in the pot
at the end of Celestial

it is time to uphold ceremony
and become a party
to our unique blend

The lovely tea poster from Tabatha Yeatts (a perk of being part of the poem swaps Tabatha has organized) brought to mind this poem I wrote a few months ago.

Drinking tea with a friend or lover seems like a good activity for the cold and dreary days of January (dreary here, anyway… where there is no snow, but it has rained the creek full of water that, by the way, is the colour of tea with milk).

poetry+friday+button+-+fulllThis poem is submitted to Poetry Friday, hosted this week by the always full-of-surprises Renee La Tulippe at her blog No Water River.

Coffee or tea poems are also welcome at Tweetspeak Poetry, where January’s  challenge is to write a poem about coffee or tea. Post in the comments.
