By The Way Of Tea

Intimacies.
A simple yet indescribable concept.
It’s a shared emotion which can’t always be expressedโ€”
but it can be encouraged by the way of tea;
an aromatic swirl of feel-good sunset pink
garnished
with cardamoms, crushed nuts and cream.
When sitting with someone who isnโ€™t good with words,
let the simple act
of raising a cup to your lips break the tensionโ€” it helps.
After all,
a predetermined thought is often consigned
to oblivion
by lure of the window of the soul which offers a better view.
