Tea and Friendship

When the world is all at odds
And the mind is all at sea
Then cease the useless tedium
and brew a cup of tea.
There is magic in its fragrance,
There is solace in its taste;
And the laden moments vanish
somehow into space.
And the world becomes a lovely thing!
There's beauty as you'll see;
all because you briefly stopped
to brew a cup of tea.

Bare with me and my poetry mood, it just seems to be calling to me lately. To paraphrase what I read in PoemCrazy-poems catch a moment within us and move us to someplace new. That is what I've been experiencing with poems. This has been helped along by a wonderful treat I received in the mail from Kary of Farmhouse Kitchen, a delightful blog that you need to check out. She talks about gardening, Buddy, food, and food again, it always makes me hungry to read her tales. We have gotten to know each other through our posts and I must say I consider her a good friend. It is amazing how wires, computers, electronic stuff can lead to something warm and personal. I never would have thought so when I started this blog but it has brought me more joy than I can possibly imagine. Thank you Kary and all of you.


  1. Lorrie I just wanted to thank you for the sweet words of condolence that you left my way. You are so kind. I feel the same way- I had no idea of the sweet friendships that I would make through blogging- there are so many sweet ladies I have met through blogging- like sweet Lorrie!

  2. Oh, Lorrie...when I saw this I smiled....and what lovely words of kindness...

    you're so can it be that through computers and wires....friendships are made...

    so HAPPY to see you are enjoying the little teacup and tea and're a good friend Lorrie...I am glad you're here...

    sending love, my friend

    P.S. You are getting me interested in poetry again...

  9. I so agree about tea. It puts the world to rights, no doubt about it.

    Lovely to hear of your friendship developing. I hope you share many real cuppas together in the future x

  10. You never have to apologize for tea and poetry in my book! That was so relaxing. I was dwelling on things out of my reach this morning and this put it all into perspective. I am off to be grateful and make a steaming cup of tea. Thanks dear one for that. Blessings.
