Two Little Boys

Zidu and Xiaodu

two little boys
smiling at each other
through the mirror

Teardrop, puddle, ocean
little one is asking
what's my capacity?

Charming, thank you :)

This little fellow is "Xiaodu" [little belly], sitting next to my long-time tea companion, Zidu [purple belly]. It is my son Xiaohu's first teapot, a generous gift from our Singaporean teachum, Keng.

P.s. You may have guessed that the haiku refers to my little boy, playing with his reflected self in the mirror.
