A Pot of Tea, weak to strong

female standing at table and taking cup of coffee

There is tea on the table and time to tell

what stories have shaped you, made you thirsty

                           for places and people who are balm

                           to what ails you. There is a way

                           that can weary the most robust

                                         of us. Stories best told

                                         with leisure. Do not mind

                                         if the tea grows cold…

It’s a gift to be asked to tell your story, and given space and time to tell it. This is rare, but easy to imagine the good it might do in the world to restore our dignity and beauty in our own and each other’s eyes.

For more on this relational discipline, called Forgiveness, check out my latest book on Amazon. It’s called “Longings of the Soul, a poetic response.” Best read with tea.

Available in paperback or hardcover.
