Teapot Tuesday

Red Spot II, Wallisy Kandinsky





The Celestial Tea Party



All the young gods were there –

bring a plate the invitation read

So we did:  figs and olives,

and those little honey cakes Artemis loves

finely curled fish cucumbers and dianthus crystal sweets



What we didn’t dream of was Dionysius and his ‘tea’



And after the party, we’ve been picking  crockery from the sky

for years

In response to Tess at The Mag.  Many others can be found dining here.

I love this tea party with the gods - and the broken crockery+photo is sheer genius. :)

As rich in form and texture as the painting that inspired it!
