Tackle It Tuesday, Tea

Also published and shared with: Haiku My Heart

Dear Haijin,

A week has gone by ... time flies ... and you can't stop it. So a new Tackle It Tuesday is on. The theme for this week is tea. Tea ... a lovely hot drink, but also as ice-tea a good drink. Tea is worth a ceremony as we can see in classical Japan.
In Japan (even now) the tea ceremony is wonderful. I have once written a haibun on the tea ceremony of Rykyu, unfortunately that haibun I have written in my maiden language Dutch. The tea ceremony is full of spirituality and aesthetic. Here below I have enclosed a video on the Tea ceremony. Enjoy watching it.

Tea ... what about tea? Just tea ... enjoy it ... so blessed when you drink tea (it's not my kind of drink, I am more of coffee). Take a cup and be inspired to write a haiku.

This prompt will stay on 'till Monday October 8th 11.59 PM

By the way please visit my new weblog Carpe Diem, seize the day. It's a new daily haiku meme and I will give every day a new theme/prompt.

Check out this: Hyde Park has a item about me in their Participating Talent Show. Really awesome.

Oh, I will pass this week's Tackle It Tues, as I can't think of anything nice with tea :-) I tried... I guess I'm a coffee person, though I do drink black tea sometimes.

Your haiku are great, Kristjaan. I'll join the friendly community with a cup of hot black coffee, though.
Best, M.

Lovely haiku about tea. I like the similarity within the contrast.

I've been over to see your new blog. Looks very nice. for now I need a break from daily prompts. Hope to participate a little later.

I love your haiku. The similarity within the contrast is really neat.

I've been over to your new blog and hope to participate later. Right now I need a break from daily prompts. However, "tea" was too good to pass up.
