tea -ceremoniously

Masala_Chai

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
~
