    ___ Each evening, Kathy and I have tea "to settle into" as Jan has said; the calm. Sometimes… there is an outside answer to that kettle's signal. _m

    evening tea
    as the stove owl signals
    two cups

    Absolutely interesting. Interesting also because it conveys the meaning in the best possible way. On similar lines something like this is possible.

    A morning filled with bright white light
    Day seems clear
    Silence everywhere
    Enjoying my cup of tea.

    A magical middle line making the mundane mystical.
    deep into winter
    the sun measured
    in kettle clicks
