A Nice Cup of Tea

Rock and water
States of matter
Both kind and cruel
Run hot and cold
Chose warm and safe
The thin green line
We know as life
Hot rock is the domain of Pele
Wisps of sulfur
Purges of steam
Ice both clinks and crushes
Ice to vapor
Gas to fusion
And bang! it goes
Fast yields to slow
Given what we know
Of time
And gravity
As matter changes
So it goes…
Warm water can
Make a nice cup of tea.
