early cup of tea
infusing leaves in water
an innocent joy

My response to Carpe Diem #1447 new tea (shincha)

Carpe Diem’s theme for this month, ‘One Sunny Day’is all about season words  and the classical kigo for Summer, as used by the classical haiku poets.

Today’s kigo is used in early summer: new tea (shincha).
