Recipe for Tea

A poem from Karen Ladonnavich, the LSC’s newest member and also the organization’s first woman member.

Recipe for Tea

It’s important to me to have the
proper temperature of hot water for tea,
and it’s also important the time
each tea bag is allowed to steep.
When the kettle starts to whistle,
only then is the water hot enough,
and after in the cup, take the bags
out or the flavors of tea get tough.

Solitaire

Solitaire

We are all connected to each other
in at least one way, if not by dozens more,
and the feeling that we are alone should be
a fleeting moment living in a sea of humanity.
Yet there are those who play solitaire, in its
many forms, with the knowledge that they
know it is the only game a person can play
by themselves and lose, winning , on average,
14 percent of the time (if you don’t cheat,
and that’s against the rules, you know.)
Besides, if you do win, how are you
going to celebrate? Go to the bar and
have one of the voices in your head
buy yourself a drink?

Lines

Lines

As toddlers, we are taught to color with
crayons inside the lines.
Then in kindergarten we move by groups in lines.
In elementary school, we get lunch in line, and
learn to write on the lines.  On the way home
from school, we ride the bikes on the right side
of the center line. When we start to drive,
we don’t pass on a solid yellow line.
Cars are parked between the lines, and parents work to
keep their kids in line.  We parents talk politics, they
are told not to move from the party line.
We wait for entrance to stadiums in line.  Some people
get in line for their share of food once a month, or
to  get a job. Dallas Cowboys like to cross the line at
the end zone with a football and we call on
telephone lines. For some reason I colored outside
the lines when I was young, and I don’t care if the poem
doesn’t rhyme.
