Tea kettle

Many things serve as  containers.  Containers for boiling.  Think of the kettle and tea -- a migration from boil to steeping.  Tea is an exquisite food, an elixir which encourages introspection.  Poetry can be on a bad boil but at some point, it benefits from a quiet steeping.

  1. In the quiet room it seemed to take so long
    but finally this from her book in the sun--
    words perched like birds in the haiku by Sukan

    If they ask for me
    say: he had business
    in another world
