Poetry: “Tatami”

Another poetry about Japan and the memories I have from there.

Tatami

Open the door
Take off your shoes
Light seeping in
Through thin sliding doors

Scent of green tea
Tatami mats
Bare feet that shuffle
Taking it in

Outside is sunlight
Inside is cool
Sipping on tea
Straight out of the pot

After the sunset
Cicadas pipe down
Put out the futons
And turn off the light
