tea -ceremoniously


image is from wiki
steeped in reverie
eyes sleep fogged
reached for pan
poured cold water
set it to boil
clearing eyes
with cold splash reached
for nostalgic spice rack
cardamom clove cinnamon
ginger, loose Turkish chai
slotted steel ladle
in circular motions
opened knotted aroma
filling nostrils pleasurably
reminiscent fumes
back pedaled zeroing
in on childhood home brews
and clay pot railway teas
it only takes a slight nudge
for memories’ dominoes
to take a glorious tumble
zigzag time travelling
meanwhile tea pot happily gurgled
ready for outpour post marriage
with tablespoons of fresh milk
as dunking cookies eagerly waited
