Me and my tea

How tea makes me feel, glowy and tough

It’s just me and my tea

Extra company, not misery

Formulates an herbal blend

Most times it will extend

And pause a quiet moment

 

Present, once again

I remember where I am

 

Chai

Oh, hi

Jasmine

My friend

Darjeeling

Makes me sing

Chamomile

Stay awhile

Navajo Tea

Wowee!

 

Your nature compels

And expels

Toxicities

With your herbal remedies

A kaleidoscope mist

Hovers my cup

 

Sweet, aromatic, flowers

Splashes of fruit

Encapsulates my taste buds

Then course through my blood

 

It’s just me

 and my tea

Enjoying each other’s company
