#tds390 Write a Gatha Poem | The Daily Stillness
A while back I tried #tds360 Idle Pleasure of the day: Wait for the tea to brew from The Daily Stillness and was quite horrified at how it turned out.
I've a pretty good routine for this: Grind coffee; while it buzzes I put water in the pot; I then add the coffee and put the pot on the stove; while it heats I prepare the cups; and pour when it bubbles.
It takes a while to boil and bubble up. I guess I usually look at my phone or read the paper, standing still that day i note that my attention is racing and I can hardly stand still, I shift from foot to foot to 'keep busy'!
Since then I occasionally try and check my posture, relax and breath whicle the coffee is brewing, perhaps this gatha will help.
