Poem: Simple Gifts

Photo by Rita Bourland © 2013

Simple Gifts

Simple gifts

Are best,

A cup of tea with thee,

Long talks of then and now

And how

The time has passed,

Grateful for the little things

That touch the heart,

The way a simple

Cup of tea

Somehow sets one free,

And all the rest just drops away,

At least

For one fine day.


  1. Oh, the beauty of these simple, quiet moments. To share them with another over tea is a blessing, an abundant blessing of simplicity. You always remind us of what is important with your words, Rita....the photo is captivating and splendid!

  2. Thanks, Michelle. There's something about the simple act of sharing tea that provides the moments needed for sharing so much more!
