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

I loved this made me think of many a time I had a cup of tea. And the feelings I felt for those occasions. Where it was good or bad news. Expressed to perfection articulate and like a dance made me want to swoon.

I'm actually not a huge tea drinker myself. However, whenever I do it definitely relaxes me. I could actually bathe in the steam that arises from the hot cup. There's something soothing about it's properties that automatically transports me to a dream-like place. This was beautifully written. Great read.

Beautiful poetry. Lovely poetic lines and I appreciate the subject matter being a tea drinker myself. Jasmine suits me as does Vanilla Red Bush. Couldn't get my brain into gear in the mornings without my first cuppa.

Thank you for your words!
I enjoyed the symbolism employed in this work. I tried to drown myself in a tub of beer once without success. I had to keep climbing out to pee. (Just kidding) Great writing.

This was refreshingly abstract... brilliant work.

Thank you!
I drink green tea every night and will soon try others. Your descriptions here echo a celebration and memories. The sense of smell and taste are strong links to memories and you use them well here.

Nicely done, MFD.
