Bathing in Tea

Bathing in Tea

A Poem by Moon's fairest daughter
"

~Tea is a sentiment, it is poetry! Hark the music it sings!~

"

I shall immerse myself
in a tub of Tea,
wrapped in the chrysalis of its heat,
and sweet aroma,
inebriated by the fragrance of 
jasmine and lavender.


The baptized brain, buoyant
with drowsy peace--
on the precipice of sanity.



When the senses are bewitched, and 
the heart slows its insistent thudding,
I stir in 
the memories of old romances,
brewing in
the pastel tales of long ago.

....Simmering...
The tea awakens,
and greets me with a savour of 
half-forgotten places and people,
of muffled music,
and lost lyrics.

When the soft citrus scent of
blackcurrants, lime and orange peels 
begins to sing in unison, 
stealing away the last of my distress,
my thoughts lay suspended
on thin silken threads.

I see the effervescence stir--
amorphous and fleeting

~An exhale of sweet warmth ~
~A spiral of silver ghosts ~
~A final hiss of steam ~

In this resplendent moment,
I can hear the beat of being.


I am. I am.

this is brilliant in many ways ...but most of all the mere fact of not even being a tea drinker
I related to every line....such a pleasantry to be able to switch a specific subject with another and not even hurt the authors vision....
which leads me to the other part of wow
haven't we all been there staring into that damn cup ??
great job how nice it was of a read

This drink of the masses does indeed possess relaxing and cathartic qualities, and you exhibit a few of these in creative and stimulating metaphor, all in all, a beautifully penned read, kudos!

my breath taken away by sensuality’s erotic song. deep in the alchemy of richness i bow to an almost forgotten memory of what a women can do to me in words and soul.
MASTERFUL!

A feast for all the senses. This has to be some of your best work! I love the sense of gradual relaxation, letting go and just being it. Congratulations on such a luxurious and original work.

Love even the fragrance of tea dancing over the dusk, and sip deep every night. How you awaken that divine, enchanted place in those moments of the scent and the sipping. What poems of you must exist in those places. There is an elegance of your soul here that transcends the common corners of the world. Wondrous, and your last echoes remind me so deeply of Sylvia Plath.

Read three times, feeling the blissful saliva of need rise! Your words positively hug the thought and taste of tea.. subtle words, loving words.. resulting in absolute satisfaction.. Wonderfully visual yet academic writing!

You're very, very welcome!
is the "I am. I am." outro at the end based off the bell jar? either way, I like it! the whole vibe here is so soothing and I truly envy your description and word choice here... the way in which you constructed this poem is really so immersive
