Cup of Tea

She sits there quietly reading

the dog pressed against her leg

sleeps soundly secure.

I look over and smile

this is love in it’s purest

sitting in the quiet of the evening

no need for wordy conversation

we both know that our love

unseen in the air binds us

connecting us even in silence

she looks up gives me a smile

pats the dog as he shifts

I ask if she wants a cup of tea

as I stand to go to the kitchen

set the water to boil, get cups

teabags at the ready, sugar, milk

soon the kettle is screaming

as I pour preparing the tea.

As the tea steeps I smile

they have it all wrong I think

love need not be all action

all passionate kisses 

love is in these moments

in the cups of tea we share

in the quiet spaces of life.
