It all Started with Tea | by Dimakatso Sedite

Posted on Posted in Poetry, Poets, Writers

It all started with tea.
Heaven knows it started with the tea!
That silent surge
in my cup..

With heaven in my hands,
I slid towards my peeling door,
towards bursting sunshine,
towards second chances.

I smelled the dawn and the dust,
the gutters and the dying dogs,
the donkeys and the brewing beer,
the skomfana, mfana,
in a place where dung was paint
where dung was polish,
and smelled like pot….

And so I cupped the heat
of my cup,
itching to write.
