The Art of Tea and Poetry

A Tapestry
A tapestry of enmity / Woven worlds of strife / Threads of hate collaborate / Unraveling all of our lives
Coming Home
Sitting on speed, metal wings in flight / black ribbons below adorned in sequins of light / screeching engines startle Night / as Time descends / Feet on ground baggage bound<br /…
A Diligent Dawn
Shards of a broken wine goblet / Drift on the surface of withering waves / Dawn dethrones the waning night / Saffroned fingers arouse a day In nakedness she wears her loss <br /…
Annals of Abraham

Birth of a River
mute starkness / an exhausted desert / blue sky white night / flesh on flesh / marital rite / in heat, soaked in sweat / body to body / a rapturous duet / / E = mc2 / inception, conception / stardust fusion<br…
