Over the past several weeks, T Ching has sponsored a tea poetry contest in conjunction with Buddha Teas.  We are delighted to announce the winner today.  On May 23, we published the top five entries and called for votes from the community.

Every entry received at least one vote.  But this is the poem, by Tia Weinberg, that touched the greatest number of rhyme-lovers, including the chief judge:

The Simplest Thing

Such a song, that is a song, that makes the heart sing loud.
A simple sound, a night profound, will make the world go round.2327856742_55ba26cf3b_z
I’d like to take a pause you see, and appreciate all the beauty,
Of the nightingales, of sweet love tales, of sunsets on the sea.
And once I’m done, I’ll restart my day
In what I deem the most enjoyable way
Whether hot or cold, with sun or rain,
I’ll pour some tea, all the same.

Thanks, Tia.  Keep writing poetry and keep drinking the good stuff.
