Carpe Diem Weekend Meditation #43 Troiku Challenge: My Lucky Tea

tonight’s moon–
how many mountains resemble
the ones back home?

going outside
plum blossoms dive in…
my lucky tea

New Year’s eve
moon dives into memories
back home sipping tea

New Year’s eve
plum blossoms swirl
over the mountains

moon dives into memories
your hand brushing mine
a ghost from the past

back home sipping tea
family and friends gather
wrapped in laughter
