Day 18 TeaCoupGlobal series 4.
Tea and Zen - If you ask Zen people they will say tea is not something that you pour with unawareness and drink like any other drink. It is not a drink, it is meditation; it is prayer. So they listen to the kettle creating a melody, and in that listening they become more silent, more alert. Pic BrettCole @vikasproject #tea#zen#teacoupglobal #

She works hard for her money - Tea Vendor Poem
" It was an early morning
Walking on the road in a city
Found a tea-shop open with small board
Ginger-tea … Rs.2/- only
I said, “Is it true? ”
The vendor answered... Every tea-vendor is not a liar sir.
I replied... don't take it otherwise
Once upon a time I too was a tea-vendor
Now I am a writer
He offered his hand quickly for shaking
And said, 'Sir I am also a poet,
but to meet the hunger of the family
Recently I become the tea-vendor.'
