Eclipse - by Katherine Gotthardt

Katherine Gotthardt’ s Haiku Poetry on the Theme: Tea

I’m counting my years

in ounces. How fast teacups

pile up, drained and stained.



I’m in hot water

again, pouring tea into

your forbidden cup.


You drink from a jar,

tea leaves drowned at the bottom.

You’ll leave them there, too.

Do You Want to be a Guest Contributor?

I accept submissions for individual pieces to post onto a group poetry page and will publish the criteria and the application form soon. We’re just starting this project (August 1, 2021), so give me a minute.

I look forward to reading great work by people who are trying it for the first time and by those who are pros.
