In honor of NaPoWriMo, this site offers a poem a day throughout the month of April. Today, let's talk Tea because it's National Tea Day in the UK. Paul Brookes of Wombwell Rainbow thought it fitting to accept my rooibos tea poem. This is a #pandemicpoetry creation so there is talk in it of Covid-19, mask-wearing, and a sense that (away from imagination) all color fades to grey. There was a time when television programs ended each night and left behind a static screen (Vibo uses that imagery in her visual poem). The folklore of tea goes back centuries. Certainly, the most popular tea party involves a white rabbit, but the tea story is so much more diverse that just one party. Be sure to watch the TED-Ed Video provided to learn about tea folklore.
9 More #NaPoWriMo poems to go! "Static Screen" is a visual poem by Margaret Viboolsittiseri, 2021 (also available at Wombwell Rainbow).
