One Cup

One cup poured

For many sittings,

A pondered cup,

A calming cup,


One cup poured

Without misgivings,

A challenged cup,

A fragile cup,


One cup poured

For just one sitting,

A filling cup,

An empty cup,

It breaks.

One cup, one mug,

One vessel, 

Poured just once,

One serving all we have,
