Sakuracha

Spread the love

output_AvTMjr

Thus in the rich midnight of the garden trees;
her thoughts carried aloft on wings of breeze.
Katsumi then remembered mother’s words to
her of serving to guests cups of sakuracha tea.

Lo! to thus esteemed banquet bids with heart;
mochi and nirareba. Oh salt-pickled blossoms
unfurl and float while steep the flavor into tea.
Hence she bathed in smiles of mirth and glee.

Pearl after pearl she shreds them thru;
Flooding thus heaven with roseate hue.

    Wonderful story telling.. there are emotions rippling under the surface just like I imagine a tea-service would be…

    Lovely photo, Sanaa. It makes the idea of brewing tea at night–or in night skies–a tantalizing accompaniment for the meal served. The tea became the magical mood, the main dish.

    This tea poem is like sugar with a dash of romance. Almost makes me want to switch from coffee to tea. Enjoyed this much Sanaa.
