The Nature Of Brown Mugs – a poem by Paul Vincent Cannon




The Nature Of Brown Mugs

I took my tea in a brown mug,
having decided against the blue,
the brown intimated something,
it’s the nature of brown,
speaking in more earthy ways,
with a mantle of wisdom to imbibe.
As I nursed the mug
nestled in my palms,
I listened to its
inaudible voice,
inviting me to a
more contemplative stance,
patiently waiting,
when I finally rose,
I stood differently in that place.

    Wow I love this poem – I did the same and was taken back to a bygone era of our lives but the result was the same
