My Creativity was Steeped — a Cup of Tea

My creativity was steeped – a cup of tea –

Set aside – but not forgotten –

A shelf became a home to thee –

A house of simple pardons –


From times of change – a flip of page –

A story forms and fades –

Through life I steep – power increase –

As temperature cools to aid –


A tender heart – a lively mind –

Strength slowly begins to increase –

Color erupts – as taste bitters –

Add a sugar to make me sweet –


Lost from sight as abandoned hope –

Imagination bleeds – liberation –

Forget me nots in porcelain cups –

A meaningful sweet concentration –


Return to your place – between the shelves –

Find your hope and dreams –

Rewrite your past – create your future –

And never be afraid to be free –
