The Art of Tea and Poetry

The Art of Tea and Poetry

Evening


Delicate evening flowers
Have opened their hearts,
Their petals tremble
On the swell of subtle scent.
May this fragrant wave
Engulf your soul,
May the maroon muslin of dusk
Lave your skin.

Feel the silk of shadows
Gently caress your face,
While some lusty leaves
Billow in the breeze
In tandem with your breaths.

Submit to this tranquil hour,
Blissful as a blossomed bower.
