Maiju’s Teacup 27/10/2017 – The Tea of Life

There’s a neglected spoonfull of sugar on the bottom of my teacup

I’d miscalculated

Full of hope and confidence, I extended my hand, picked up the teapot

The bottom fell out of my everyday dream

As I realised the pot was so light as surely to be empty

Shaking the pot lightly had no effect on the contents

But I had to lift the lid to be completely certain.
