I need some tea!

Ishould-always-have-my-tea
Tiny leaves steeped in boiling water

Jostling in the kettle with spices exotic

Infusing their essence as the water gets hotter

Raising expectations with their properties aromatic..

As the golden brown liquid pours out

Of a kettle into dainty cups of fine porcelain

Everyone is waiting without a doubt

For a rejuvenating, refreshing sip again..

At last, tea is served on a tasteful platter

To the accompaniment of snacks delectable

As the guests indulge in idle chatter

Huddled in small groups around the table.

*

Ah! The heavenly first sip that promise brings

That all predicaments shall solutions find

Tea is water bewitched, every drop soul-stirring

A magic potion for the exhausted mind.. 

*

With hands wrapped around a cup of tea

In many discourses have I taken part

Sharing ideas and opinions with alacrity

Pouring out desires hidden deep in my heart…

Dunking cookies within the piping hot drink

Letting them melt in my mouth on contact

Nostalgia engulfs me every time I think

Of those childhood days whose memories are intact..
