To Those Who Brew

They say
that if a man
has no tea in him
then he is incapable
of understanding truth
and beauty.
This is a simple truth.
Life
is much like
a hot cup
of tea.
It must be sipped
at just the right moment,
you see?
To drink it too fast
is to not only scald
oneself,
but to miss the flavor
and the intensity.
But if you take too long
the tea grows cold,
and you will find
that you have missed
your chance
to truly experience it.
Indeed,
learning to enjoy life
in this way
allows you to fully appreciate
the moment
of now,
which is truly
the only moment
we are ever given.
