Jasmine Blossom Ball

I hear the tea kettle so need to go fix my tea. I have chosen one of those little jasmine blossom balls to plunk in my cup today–in water the tight, little ball slowly unfolds into individual leaves of green tea, like we do when we go out into the world, unfolding and reaching, touching and expanding all the parts of us until we are connected to those all around us. The pink blossom is the surprise in the mass of green and I like to believe that is our soul.
