Tea & Company

Visited with the fading
moon last night.

She said,
“The morning after
is something of a let-down,
what with all the excitement
and blush
gone.”

Sighing, she reached for
her tea, adding,
“Nothing left to do,
I suppose, but become less
than I have been.”

I thought I saw a small
smile just before the cup
reached her lips.

  1. Oh I wish you could hear me….I absolutely chuckled delightfully at the end of this. What a WONDERFUL personification of the moon — having tea and worried about becoming less that what she was….her blush gone….LOVING IT! 🙂 There’s definitely a smile on my face, imagining her smile as she sips that last sip of tea 🙂
