Lukewarm

The cozy covers the pot.

The one my great-aunt knit for me oh so many years ago. 

Worn and frayed at the edges.

 slightly stained, not a pretty sight.

 Ah, well... it was ugly when I got it. 

 Aunt Birdie wove it into creation with left-over yarn. 

Colours uncomplimentary.

Let’s face it, it doesn't have to be attractive.

 The old thing is nothing more than a toque preserving tea tempurature..

On this dreary day, one tailor-made for hot tea and indifference.

 I contemplate the knitted warmer.

 It's alternating brown and mustard yellow stripes with pink pompom atop.

I lift the atrocity from the pot and pour steeped liquid into my favourite mug.

At first sip I anticipate thermal comfort.

 What I get is tepid disappointment.

Sigh.

 Lukewarm tea on a lukewarm day.
