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 relaxed,

And the soul rejuvenated,

Is it the brew, or the aroma,

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 another day,

Full of infinite possibilities.

        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.

        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!

        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!

        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!

        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!

        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!

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

        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!

        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.

        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.

        You've captured the feeling perfectly.

        "... 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!

        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.
