Cup of Tea

An opportunity
Is rather like a cup of tea
It doesn't disappear
If you're not quick to act
But the sooner that you spring
The hotter it will be.

If you go too early,
And if you go too late
You'll end up burning
Mouth or tongue
Or tasting tea not great.


  1. I love tea. This is such a great analogy. I made an awesome one about cookies too - remind me to tell you later. Mine isn't as beautiful and poetic...but still. :)

  2. Thanks. Haha, I just sit in my room when I want to write something, pick the closest, interesting thing and squeeze it into an analogy for something. I'll try to remember to ask. :)

  3. I do the same only at work :)

  4. I think it's actually more like a cup of coffee. Tea has bags in it. Opportunities don't, and neither does coffee.

    Good work. ;)

  5. Neither did my tea ;) Haha. Anyway, many thanks, and I'm sure the same analogy could be used on any hot liquid contained within the confines of a cuptual space.
