Tea and God

I found a beautiful poem on A Cup of Tea and a Blog that I wanted to share. The poem is from Drifting, by Dominic Cheung (Chang Ts'o) who is a Taiwanese poet. They are love poems with tea as the main image.

The first poem really reminds me of the biblical quote,
He must increase and I must decrease. John 3:30
Love Poems of Tea
1 If I, the boiling water,
And you, the tea;
Then your fragrance
Has to depend solely upon my plainness.

I can see how that poem reminds you of the biblical quote! Good thinking.
Although I drink alot of coffee, I enjoy tea. My favorite lately is jasmine tea, it's the smell! It's addictive =)
Oh and buying tea pots and cups is pretty addictive too!

I love jasmine tea too for the same reason!

How does the milk and sugar fit into the picture?

Dymphna's favorite quotes

"Slavery ended in medieval Europe only because the church extended its sacraments to all slaves and then managed to impose a ban on the enslavement of Christians (and of Jews). Within the context of medieval Europe, that prohibition was effectively a rule of universal abolition. "— Rodney Stark
