The Cloud in Your Tea

Can you see the cloud in your tea?

I wrote this poem at the Mindfulness Retreat.  I did not have any one in particular, and yet all who suffer from the notion of  loss, in mind.  When I returned home, a dear friend’s father passed from this life.  In honor of my friend, I share this with you.  Hope this brings freedom to your suffering and peace to your heart.

When conditions are sufficient, I am a cloud.

When conditions are sufficient, I am rain.

When conditions are sufficient, I am a tea leaf.

When conditions are sufficient, I am a cup of tea.

I am sufficient; you are sufficient.

No coming; no going; just being.

Drink your tea and savor your cloud.
