Tea in Paris

Sipping the delicate nectar
as herbs gently lift
To my nose,
Lavender and bergamot,
Mint and lemongrass,
Scenes on the water
Tower reflected.
Music from a distant window
Traffic rushes by
Sun gentle on my brow
Closing my eyes
Enjoying this tea in Paris.
I think of things most loved,
Beautiful art,
A smile unexpected,
A hug from friends and love,
Yes love most importantly
Never forgotten.
The bread warm from the oven
Sits resting nearby,
Clothes on the line drying
In the afternoon sun,
Pine rich floors cleaned
To a glistening shine,
Carpets fresh
And wood cut for fire,
Sunday work set aside
Sipping tea in Paris
Sweet memories of a day
That has not happened yet,
Just sweet daydreams
To pass the time
Sitting home in my chair
Tea cool beside me,
Home sweet home
Filled with dreams
In my mind.
But the tea is most lovely
None the less,
Come, I’ll pour you a cup,
We can dream together
Of far away places,
Imagining what we would do and see,
Would you join me?
I have more water brewed,
Patiently waiting
To see you soon.

  1. For a dream then, you’ve captured it admirably. We had coffee in a cafe on the Champs-Elysees in late October but the ambience of your words ring just as true there as well. I hope you do get to visit in person – it’s a magical city.


  2. I love this! I enjoy nothing more than a good cup of sweet tea. I love that you combined that with imagining yourself being somewhere else. Two of my favourite things! I’ll join you! (:

  4. Loved the heady aroma of tea in Paris
    Funnily thought that ‘brew’ in the first
    line needs something more. It felt a ‘lack’ – just my thoughts. The rest is a sweet sup upon a lovely piece of art. G;)
