Happy Friday Poets!
Today we have the opportunity of taking a leap into a distant land.
If it pleases your muse, take a virtual trip to the Fields of Tea in China!
Explore the region if you like...
Or Delve into the leaf of tea itself...
(cc wiki Oolong tea leaves steeping in an uncovered zhong
(type of tea cup)).
(cc wiki Gary Stevens Chinese tea utensil including three gaiwan Chinese tea utensils).
Here's a glimpse of an authentic Tea ceremony...
Or delve into different aspects from this place.
Perhaps the Terracotta Warriors will inspire...
(cc wiki Some of the thousands of life-size Terracotta Warriors of the Qin Dynasty, ca. 210 BCE
Terracotta Army detail, Xi'an, China Photo by Peter Morgan).
Or maybe China's Panda Bear...
If you choose to be inspired by this challenge
please, write something new featuring a facet of China
and/or the famous Tea Fields
and please, visit other's who're linked here, too.
I loved your prompt. I could go on and on about the mysterious Chinese and their Tea History... Ive read a little about it out of interest and its a captivating history!! thank u for the prompt Hannah!
There is no Mr. Linky available.... So heres my Link :
Thank you for this lovely post, with the fresh and inspiring images. A great subject to think upon during the day. Enough ideas, but will a poem emerge?
Ah yes, this quite a delightful prompt, it sent me to a have a cp of tea myself, now i hope my poetry muse kicks in quickly
Thank you for another inspirational journey to one of the world's most beautiful sights, Hannah.
I'm not sure if it is just my system, but the first pic is not showing up. I tried to resize it to no avail.
found Mr. Linky!! Oh i cant open the first image either and the link is not working either... :)
Thank you, Hannah! I love tea and all its sentiment! Oolong is a favorite-off to make a cup and find inspiration-thanks again~
I'm sorry that there were difficulties with images and Mr.Linky today...I'm just opening up the portal to the world today...I'll be around to read you all soon...I'm so glad that you're finding some good inspirational energy in this challenge...thank you!!
I spent all of today learning things i did not know about Tea and China and trade. Of course, I'm not quite satisfied, but I thank you Ms. Hannah for always inspiring my thirst for adventure.
Sorry, Hannah, that I'm sooo late posting. Family etiquette said I was to play bridge with three other couples tonight. That lasted until midnight. Played golf today too. Can still write for you.
I really couldn't find my China pictures. I have gobs of slides and they were all where they belonged.
A friend of mine gave me a box of authentic Wu Yi tea and it is wonderful! I had started a silly little rhyme then saw the panda pic and couldn't resist... thanks :)
I woke up with the sun on my mind, and I love the place of the sun in Chinese Mythology. So thanks for the bright prompt!
Late to the tea party :) Thanks for the prompt.
I love your prompts, Hannah - sorry to be late to the party.
