Lips of the tulips......

LIPS OF THE TULIPS
==================
The Teapot is on the Table
Enjoy your cup of tea
And tell me everything
Chance meeting with the stranger
Exchanging moments in still time
Making a decision to go one way
Not an other way
Its only when you are far along
To change the direction
Realizing you have now no choice

The flow carried my senses
From the beginning to the end
In a cozy floating web of thoughts
Where words were swimming
To reach the Top
Exhausting
But needing relaxation to empty myself


Tears fell down from the cheeks
Like icicles dropping through my chin
Then a sudden smile spread over the face
a warmth of spring afternoon
Melting the silence of the words
on the lips of the Tulips
