Drinking Jasmine Pearls from a Paper Cup

an antidote

Lost in the pulp of impermanence
I see limp tendrils.

They glisten as rosettes
perfumed by blossoms
only in my reveries.

A dream of a vessel
possessing no Self
receiving and giving
our true nature.

This is really beautiful! I love Jasmine Pearls - they are in my top 3 teas which I'm sure you know is a difficult list to top!
I keep a Chinese tea blog too which you can see here if you want...
