The aroma of tea

Spread the love

tee-508114_1280

While sipping on a cup of Lipton tea;
When lamps were lit and curtains drawn.
I remembered the words you said to me.

Around month of May four years ago;
In what seemed to be a crowded room
Began soon a passionate ebb and flow.

Perhaps to himself that moment he said;
Could go for a cup of tea in kitchenette,
I remember because that’s how we met.

Oh pleasure made the cheeks grow red;
His smile was something like sunset.
The kind which you don’t soon forget.

While sipping on a cup of Lipton tea;
I remembered the words you said to me.

    This is a sweet recollection of the first meeting ~ I specially like the line:
    His smile was something like sunset.

    Happy New Year Sanaa ~

    This made me smile, especially because I almost wrote about the smell of tea… When I stepped out my door into the snow I had a cup in my hand and the two scents were just perfect together.
    I love the way you sort of wound this up and back down again, all around your cup of tea.

    Nicely written. Tea has qualities of varied tastes, warmth, and carries with it tradition. Morning, afternoon, or evening, it goes with scones, bread, sandwiches…especially good is the memory with the boyfriend.

  7. Bjorn says:

    How sweet tea can be, even if you don’t add sugar… If I smell tea my hands get warm from the memory of cradling a cup…

  11. Marina Sofia says:

    Natural flow to this terza rima – slides down your throat as smooth and warm as a cup of tea…

    1. Sanaa says:

      Hello Marina,

      Thanks for stopping by, so glad you liked it 🙂
      Highly appreciated, have a great week ahead.

  12. I am smiling that something so mundane as Lipton tea could still nurture poetics, rather than make the tea more exotic. In this day of Starbuck’s concoctions, it would be like waxing poetic about Folger’s coffee (which could work in the hands of a clever poet).
