Sun Tea
Michael Escoubas


days are
long under
widening blue
spotted with cotton,
Mother pulls down her big
clear fruit jar sitting shelf high,
pumps in fresh falls of well water,
throws in six tea bags, bows to the sun
till nectar tumbles down mountains of ice.

This is really a good one, Michael. Can just see that transformation taking place and "nectar tumbling down mountains of ice." Perfect for today.
