Filling my cup (OctPoWriMo)

Day 25

Prompt: Cup

Form; Free verse

Every morning as sunshine pours into my home
the nearby mango tree waves cheerily
sitting in my chosen spot in the balcony
I pour fresh brewed tea in my favourite cup
feeling warmed inside and out
I feel the golden and amber seeping into my cracks.

The moonlight is a salve for my achy soul
bathing my being luxuriantly
the soothing scent of tuberose welcomes me
as I pour my heart on a pristine sheet
words flow seamlessly
my cup of contentment runneth over.

  1. Absolutely….. as I often mention in my coaching sessions – even the air hostesses tell us – in case the cabin pressure reduces, masks will drop. Wear your own mask before helping anyone else (be it your child or an elderly person)

  3. Oh how perfectly you used the prompt word Cup to bring the 2 most beautiful parts of the day in our experience with your poem! The sunlight and the moon light are both such powerful energies to soak in.
