Tea Street

My eyes dart down to the
Cup of tea
Small bubbles forming
Fleeting to the side
Though there is no side
Only a warm roundness of being

We begin our lives as leaves
Leaving comfort
We smell cozy

Dip us in hot water
And we effect change
Infecting tastebuds and nostrils
With wild, with calm, with each other

There is a unity in tea
That captures us
And we relax in our arms
Relinquish control
Revisit where we wish we were
Every jazzy setting eve
