tea at 3

sitting at table 

rose and blue laugh merrily

as picasso

playing with sugar cubes

trembles with joy

and feeling de light

escapes into state-of-the-art idea

he dampens cloth napkin

with cold tea

wipes his brow

please keep this to yourselves, he says

we’re in this together

      Thanks, Shawna. You never know–Picasso’s thoughts on cubism could have been inspired while drinking tea. Thanks for reading and commenting. 🙂

    Do you know this site?


    I think he might be interested in publishing this … and/or other pieces of yours. Of course, I don’t know whether *you* would be interested in *that*. 🙂
