Poets united, wonder wednesday, weird, tea ghost



A new challenge?  Poets united's Wonder Wednesday, weird ... tea ghost ... Wonderful idea. And of course ... I have to try.

translucent tea cup
hides a deep secret
ghost of tea

geisha's secret life
gathering tea leaves
for her lover

Ah yes, I am sure the geishas harbored lots of secrets. I enjoyed your poem......and my own wonderings based on your poem.

A story hidden in a cup. I love the tale

lovely! from my research, if a geisha had a non-customer lover, she WOULD have to hide him.

wonderful!
