…enjoying summer 5

honey bee drinks for
the hive; transforms liquid gold
for my morning tea

“Trimmings”

Cut
Some low
Lying branches and
That nasty little creeping
Vine

The
One that
Makes me itch
If I’d let it
Connect

But
When boiled
Makes a lacquer
That adorns works of
Art

Like
The little
Round box gifted
From Japan holding black
Tea

10.19 …one thousand coats…

little tea box shines
because of the lacquer made
by little berries

one thousand coats protect the
carefully hand painted box

The resins of certain species native to Japan,
China and other Asian countries, such as lacquer
tree (T. vernicifluum) and wax tree (T. succedaneum),
are used to make lacquer, and, as a byproduct of lacquer
manufacture, their berries are used to make japan wax.

Honoring 7
renga and Elfje combo:

dragon and damsel
flies have treats and tea with you
and me – imagine

encouragement to live life
dream within layered dreaming

buttercup nectar
from and endless font of love
rainbows every day

~~~~~

nurturing
the gardens
of our souls
recognizing the mirror image
You
