This past weekend it turned cold and rainy here, and we were especially grateful for a warm cup of tea!
As I was passing by the tsukubai (the outdoor water basin where guests stop to wash their hands before coming into the tearoom) I saw the raindrops falling into the water, and it was such a pretty image that I thought I should write a poem about it. So here it is, with apologies to any real poets out there:
raindrops on cloudy water
waiting for red leaves
