An Empty Cup and Mercy

My cup is empty of herbal tea
and a deep longing caresses my heart
on this cold winter night.
It is quiet and there exist a somewhat subtle inner beauty,
delicately reminding me of the fullness of time
and the richness and wholeness of existence.
It articulates what mercy is all about.
