  1. it takes two to not
    look at each other –
    one to spin
    the yarn, and
    one to knit the
    illusion, at the
    very least, three-
    ply, twisted.

    it takes two to not
    boil the water – one
    to turn the burner
    on, and one to turn it
    right off, two to not
    look at each other –
    no tea, no stirring
    for conversation.

    it takes two to stop
    breaking down –
    one to spin
    the yarn, and
    one to knit the
    illusion, two to not
    boil the water, no tears
    humming on the
    burner, no whistle
    screaming for release

  3. beautiful photo. stumbled on your site. thank you

  4. Love your photos and poems! Did you really take all the photos yourself? Very beautiful!

  5. The words of this poem just roll smoothly off my tongue as I read them aloud, not unlike tea flowing from a spout of a teapot. Wonderful image and a beautiful poem knitting our innate desire to share with others.

    • thank you. it was written just yesterday, when i spoke to my mom, and for the first time we didn’t break down. i think it was because one was “spinning the yarn” and the other was “knitting the illusion,” and we were both “not looking at each other” so that we could in a way fool ourselves.

  6. Fantastic picture! I like the positioning and composition along with the way you captured the lighting!!! Excellent!!!

    • thank you, Brett, for visiting again.

      • You’re very welcome and I am soaking it all up! I’m not much for taking a great picture, but I do enjoy it and I love poetry. I’m learning a lot from you and am very inspired! Thanks…

  7. Something about the perspective of your photo makes me feel as if I’m about to sit down and NOT share the tea.
    Lovely.
    A large poster image of this with the poem text–think about it….
