Sipping Tea

Sipping Tea

written by: Ger White

 

Watching steam rise against the sun
Sitting sipping hot herbal tea
Rainbow colours delightfully dance
In wavy lines floating gently free
Steam reflects our hopes and prayers
Sending love into the atmosphere
Even as we try to hide our grace
We pray that God will find us here
“Soar on upwards!” lines and waves
“Nudge the angels to come close”
A spiritual hug let us feel
A reason to sip, to dream, to hope

APRIL 2020 AUTHOR OF THE MONTH at Spillwords.com
Gerardine White - (also called Ger) grew up in wild open country of West Limerick, Ireland. Her country life is represented in her poems and has a strong bearing on her core values and education. She inherited the skill of poetic rhyme from both of her parents and her Grandad. This past year she was published in four Anthologies from Clarendon House Publications. Some of her poems will already have appeared in Ballyguiltenane Rural Journal over time. She had the pleasure of spending an evening with Seamus Heaney in Dublin in 2011. It was later very humbling to read a testimonial of her work:
“Your poetry reminds me of Seamus Heaney” (Grant Hudson - Clarendon House Publications)
"Poems by Ger have the ability to lift the soul and bring it to a place of peace and calm"
(Peg Prendeville, Poet. - The Purple Pencil)
