Tea

Tea

"
Steep
You bathe
Soak,
Sleep.
Steep,
Gracefully you'd gift space to me,
Time,
Peace.
Calm yet the kettle teared and howled
A meadow's creak;
Chirps,
Faint squeaks and sounds
Horizon peak,
You see, morning's when I'd adore you most.
Aroma,
I'd transcend
Scent of incense
Reimagined
Rewound again and again.
Steep; Rooibus,
Ginger,
Green
Tea.

As a tea lover I am so digging this. It perfectly pulls the reader into the aroma of a morning cup of tea yet draws deeper suggesting metaphorical significance in perfect unison with a tea centered atmosphere.

The beginning
“Soak,
Sleep.
Steep,”
Does such a great job capturing the reader and then the mid lines expand the poem visually before ending so simply and magically.

I find “Calm yet the kettle teared and howled” as well as “You see, morning's when I'd adore you most” to be really nice lines.

Very much enjoyed reading this!

Ahhh~~~!!! I love tea! I drink it without fail every morning with honey. You did a lovely job and did justice to the all the senses that are evoked with tea drinking. I felt like I could almost hear the kettle, taste, smell, and see this tea---I always envision tea drinking in a cozy chair by the window.
I also like the usage of one worded lines. They draw readers into a slow rhythm and atmosphere and let them ponder and "taste" each word described.
