~Cup of Happiness~

Pouring Tea
Originally uploaded by mrjoro

Fill your soul with happiness
Through your hands only
As now one would do that for you
If you do not initiate to fill your cup
The cup will remain empty
Keep in mind, its DIY
Do It Yourself
No waiters will be serving you
To fill your cup of happiness

"When you are given an empty cup, who can help themselves except to fantasize poured tea in that cup, then it comes the aroma of tea, deliciously inviting you. Yet the first sip seems to be waited endlessly. No doubt it's a nip that awakes all senses."

I am the cup
The tea
Is all around

Is all I need
To fill the cup
With truth found

Hear the universe sing
Learn to recognize
The sound
