Over Tea

“See with your eyes! Listen with your ears! And if you wish to smell the fragrance, press for an explanation of every unresolved matter until your understanding is complete.”-Sen No Rikyu

Intimacies shared
Over tea vanish in a vaporous
Mist as your smoldering
Eyes meet mine
Over the rim of the delicate cup
A burning need to touch
Our lips, to kiss
As the seductive scent
Of white star jasmine
Fills the tensile air
