What once was whispered to spring ushered its bloom

Spread the love

I sip comfort in the early hours of morning as rays highlight the blush suffusing my skin. Below the sights and sounds of traffic sound vaguely as though a murmur through the door; as I indulge in conversation and Kashmiri tea garnished with crushed nuts and a hint of salt with cardamom. If eyes are the antechamber to the soul then lips are no less, the deep curve of his makes the world around me spin with a smile that brings to mind a thousand memories; each of which offers joy of being alive and just a bit more humane.

Cassia trees sway in Spring,
a wave of gold spreads
as the wind sings your name.

    This is just so beautiful. The placing of the word ‘humane’ reminds me of all that is good and worthy in this world.

    I really love the way you describe the process of drinking tea which to me bridges so naturally into the lips and the connection of a true conversation.
