Tea Time, Reading Time: #LMMLinkup


Welcome back to another Literacy Musing Mondays linkup! We are so glad you are here and hope you enjoy reading, commenting and sharing your own blog posts with us. There is no guest poster this week, so I’d like to share a poem I wrote a couple of years ago. It’s called Tea Time, Reading Time.

In our house we have tea time every afternoon. That tradition was started when my children were younger. We would often read books aloud together as we sipped our tea. Now my kids are grown and most are out of the house, but we still occasionally enjoy tea time together over a good book or just good conversation.

Often a nice cup of tea is perfect when I need to relax and take a break. Hope you enjoy the poem and maybe even have your own cup of tea!

Tea Time, Reading Time

Tea time, reading time
Transported to other lands
Imaginations soar
Precious time together

Tea time, good friend time
Intimate conversations
Kind, encouraging words
Sharing tears and laughter

Tea time, lovely time
A daily welcomed respite
Savoring every sip
As tensions slip away

Linkup Rules:

  1. Include a link back or the blog hop button linked to this hop on your posts.
  2. Link up the urls to your posts not to your blog.
  3. Please remember this is a family-friendly linkup. Although we believe in the right for adults to read whatever they want to read, we prefer to read wholesome posts that feature literature that edify and uplift families. We reserve the right to delete any posts that are not family friendly. We love all kinds of literature and genres including family-friendly inspirational romances, fantasy, or science fiction. But we do not welcome posts featuring books or writing with excessive violence, sexual content, or cursing. These posts will be deleted.
  4. We also want to be loving community by supporting one another. Please make a point to do this this week! Visit the two posts before yours and at least one other blogger’s post of your choice! I want to see lots of clicks on everyone’s posts. Remember it is also nice to follow them on their social media platforms like Twitter and Facebook.
  5. Follow your hosts and co-hosts on their social media.
  6. Tweet about the link up too.

  1. A post about tea AND reading? Yes, please.
    Two of my favorite things, and now I’m sounding like Julie Andrews. Thanks for your faithful presence here.

  2. I love your “Tea Time” poem, Gayl — it makes me think of all my dear college friends and how we’ve always loved to share a cup of tea and conversation!
