The blue cup with the butterfly

I sweep the dry leaves and the brushwood from the alley leading to the front door.
I rarely do so, as I seldom have visitors.
The night before you arrive, I know it will rain. In silence, it will wet the trees and the roof.
The scent of wet soil will greet you along with the one of the roses I planted near the entrance.
I will leave the front door ajar. It may squeak, echoing my old bones.
As for me, after setting up the tray with the blue cup with the butterfly, I will depart.
The kettle will be filled. The tea leaves are in the small white jar.
You will find tranquility here.
Stay as long as you wish.

  1. No, no, please don’t go
    what of the blue cup?
    What of the butterfly?
    Without your sweet presence
    A thousand pretty artifacts
    A hundred magical fragrances
    Cannot compare with one smile
    One touch
    One moment together
    Please stay 🙂
