Tea Ceremony

You pour the tea
in my small china cup
I sip and we talk
of our lives, our families

Cherry blossoms flutter
around us
The Jasmine tea, the blossoms,
the ritual

transported back
to the Cherry blossom Festival
Hirosaki, Japan
we roamed the grounds
eating squid on a stick

bittersweet
something to remember
