As a friend recently reminded me, October is Poetry Writing Month (OctPoWriMo). Given that I enjoy long challenges that only require a small amount of my time daily, I decided to participate, and will be aiming to post a new poem here every day this month.

I currently have ten minutes before I need to leave for work, and still have most of a cup of tea to finish,  so let’s get started.

Ceramic vessel grasping at steam
As it escapes, leaving behind
Its previous life, confined and
Forced en mass around pipes and
Intermingled with faint paints.
Steam wets her face as she
Sips her tea, the last of the fight
Attempting to sting her thirsty tongue.
Constant change is water’s life.
