The Art of Tea and Poetry

The Art of Tea and Poetry

A Butterfly


He felt an ocean
Surging all around him,
But, strangely, he was amused
Rather than  afraid.
He also felt  strong  again,
All those tubes attached to him
Seemed redundant.
He rose up to meet the ocean,
The waves spread like wings
To carry him with them...

A butterfly was seen fluttering away
From the window of his room;
While he lay inert  they covered him
With a fresh white sheet.
