The Morning Cup of Tea (Poem)

Chitrangada likes to express herself by writing fiction and poetry. Her writing reflects her mood and is inspired by the beauty of nature.

Morning cup of tea, brings along some blissful moments with it.

My Morning Cup of Tea—My Blissful Moments!

The morning cup of tea time,

Is my most blissful time;


When we both, just sit quietly,

With our hot cup of tea;


Reading the newspapers,

Feeling content, doing nothing;


With the mind being relaxed,

And the soul being rejuvenated;


Is it the effect of the brew, or the aroma,

Or, is it the attractive tea cups;


No dear—it’s the togetherness,

The companionship of a lifetime;


The feeling of satisfaction,

That we still have ‘today’,


The joy of watching the Sunrise together,

Makes us thank ‘His Grace’ silently;


For assigning us, yet another day,

Full of infinite possibilities.


The Morning Sunrise, brings along Hope and Aspirations.

Thanks BRENDA, for sharing your thoughts on this poem.

The morning tea is a habit for me and I enjoy it peacefully, to get ready for the day, both physically and mentally. In the winter season, it is more necessary to have it, for keeping warm. Glad you liked the theme of the poem.

Thank you and Have a good day.

BRENDA ARLEDGE from Washington Court House on January 04, 2020:

Chitrangada,

You painted a wonderful peaceful picture in my mind.

It would be so nice to sit in the morning with a cup of tea sharing the company of another.

I only fix a pot if its really cold outside in the mornings.

Thanks for sharing.

Thank you MarleneB, for stopping by! It’s always a pleasure to see you reading my hubs!

I am glad, that you can relate to this. It’s the sentiments of the mornings, that we all share, and I am so happy to observe the universality of human behaviour, all around the World.

Thanks for commenting, and enjoy your mornings with your better half!

Marlene Bertrand from USA on April 23, 2018:

This is a beautiful poem. My husband drinks tea and I drink coffee. Still, when we sit together in the morning sipping beverages in the morning, it is a great way to start the day.

Chitrangada Sharan (author) from New Delhi, India on April 23, 2018:

Thank you Peg, for sharing your thoughts here!

This is wonderful to know, that most of the readers can relate to this. This was spontaneous, and I am happy to read everyone’s response.

It’s so easy to find happiness, in simple things of life.

That reminds me of a quote, “ It is so easy to be happy, but it’s so difficult to be simple.”

Thank you once again, for reading and commenting! Wish you a wonderful day!

Truly a special moment shared and captured in this beautiful verse. We love our morning coffee time as well. It sets the day in motion and starts the day off with conversation. Loved this poem.

A very blissful married life and you’re so lucky for being together.Two cups of tea are the best part of your life and great source of happiness and empathy.

Bless you!

Thank you Manatita for visiting this hub again!

Nice to know that you visited The World Parliament of Religions.

You are right, Tea is more popular in this part of the World.Most of the Asian nations love to have tea, and there are so many varieties of them.

Thank You once again!

Chitrangada Sharan (author) from New Delhi, India on April 23, 2018:

Thank you MsDora, for reading and commenting on this poem!

Agree with your views. Tea or coffee can’t be enjoyed alone. It is the time spent with family and friends, that makes the tea time, or coffee time special.

Thanks for always encouraging me with your kind words of appreciation! Have a blessed day!

Chitrangada Sharan (author) from New Delhi, India on April 23, 2018:

Thank you Frances Metcalfe, for sharing your morning happy time here!

I forgot to add biscuits in the picture. Yes, we have it too.

Thank you my friend, for your lovely feedback! Have a blessed day.

Thank You my dear friend for your continued support!

manatita44 from london on April 23, 2018:

2nd note: I went to the World Parliament of Religions in Chicago in 1993. It was the 100th Centenary and the first since Vivekananda in 1893. There was a tea ceremony done by the Japanese, I believe. Incredibly beautiful!

Chitrangada Sharan (author) from New Delhi, India on April 23, 2018:

Thanks for your kind visit and appreciation Manatita, my dear friend !

Glad you liked it. A very good day to you!

Chitrangada Sharan (author) from New Delhi, India on April 23, 2018:

Thank you Sean, for appreciating the poem!

You are right, togetherness is the first step towards blissful oneness. This pious relationship of a lifetime has to be nurtured with affection, understanding, commitment and care.

I am glad you could relate it to the blissful time shared with your wife.

Thank You so much for your kind words. It’s the positive feedback by fellow writers, such as you, that provides all the encouragement to keep me going.

Have a blessed day!

Chitrangada Sharan (author) from New Delhi, India on April 23, 2018:

Thank You Peggy, for reading and appreciating the poem!

It was spontaneous, and I am glad you liked it. Thanks for your support!

Dora Weithers from The Caribbean on April 22, 2018:

"It’s the togetherness." I totally agree. Tea for two is so much more fulfilling than otherwise. Good read!

Frances Metcalfe from The Limousin, France on April 22, 2018:

Best drink of the day. I run downstairs in my bare feet, put the kettle on the cooker to boil (have dispensed with the electric one) and take the tea and biscuits back up to bed where my partner and I read the latest news. There's something indispensable about an unhurried start to the morning, puts your mood on an even keel for the rest of the day. And what better than your poem to read too!

Doris James MizBejabbers from Beautiful South on April 22, 2018:

Oh, Honey, it's all of the above. To bask in the joy of being together and being blessed with a roof over one's head and to afford to drink tea out of pretty little cups along with watching a beautiful sunrise. For my house it is coffee, but the feeling is there.You have put it all into such pretty verse.

Eric Dierker from Spring Valley, CA. U.S.A. on April 22, 2018:

I must admit that I am not a purist in my reading, meditation and prayer. First things first. That wonderful cup of fresh brewed tea or coffee. Of course a walk outside together. Wow i am spoiled. Thank you for this wonderful tribute to possibly the most serene moment of a day.

Linda Crampton from British Columbia, Canada on April 22, 2018:

Your description is lovely, Chitrangada. You've conveyed the joy of a precious moment in time beautifully.

Mary Wickison from Brazil on April 22, 2018:

I too feel a sense of calming with my first cup of tea. Isn't it a great way to start a day?

You've captured the feeling perfectly.

manatita44 from london on April 22, 2018:

What an extremely beautiful poem!

I like it very much. Superb piece, my Didi Ji.

Ioannis Arvanitis from Greece, Almyros on April 22, 2018:

"... it’s the togetherness..."

I loved it, my dear friend, not only for the beauty of the image which reminded me the happiness of sharing time with my beloved wife, with a cup of hot coffee but for the knowledge that togetherness is the first step to the blissful Oneness!

Thank you so much for sharing Light!

Hari Om!!

Sean

Peggy Woods from Houston, Texas on April 22, 2018:

Thank You billybuc, for reading and commenting!

Yes, I am sure, you can relate to this. Love those quiet few minutes of the mornings, so necessary to prepare us for the day.

Appreciate your encouraging comments!

Thank you Venkatachari Ji, for sharing your thoughts on this poem!

I agree with you, that the mornings are the best times, to think, reflect, and plan.

Many thanks for your kind visit and comments!

Bill Holland from Olympia, WA on April 22, 2018:

I think we can all relate. For me it's that morning cup of coffee...the quiet few minutes before responsibilities push their way into my life. :)

Chitrangada Sharan (author) from New Delhi, India on April 22, 2018:

Thank you John, for your appreciation of the poem! Yes, the sentiments are real, not only of mine, but I believe of many others.

Appreciate your visit and positive feedback!

Venkatachari M from Hyderabad, India on April 21, 2018:

True, Chitra. The morning tea moments are the blissful ones. I do not even hold a newspaper. I simply sit sipping the tea, experiencing the togetherness and full of random thoughts.

John Hansen from Queensland Australia on April 21, 2018:

Beautiful words and real sentiments, Chitrangada. Lovely music to accompany it as well.
