Yesterday after making a cup of tea for my partner Andy it seemed to be taking rather a long time for him to come down from his computer gaming session and consume it! Feeling a little on the idle side (as my dear Grandma would have said!) I decided to pen a little ode to the lonely teacup. Even the smallest of occurrences can turn creative if you let them! Merry Christmas!
The lonely tea cup waited there
upon the worktop surface
It acted like it didn’t care,
but your indifference hurt it
To sit and stew made it turn blue
and tea should not be tainted
It longed for just one sip from you
Its heart felt perforated
Come drink me now, the brew declared
You’ll see, it will be worth it!
But please don’t leave me waiting there
upon the worktop surface!
