Ancient Ritual

Poetic Asides – Poem a Day Challenge – Day 11 Prompt:

The prompt for today is to describe something--only one thing--that is either very interesting to you or something you think is often overlooked and taken for granted. I'm thinking inanimate objects here, but I'm not going to restrict you to that.


Ancient Ritual
a cup of tea
warm and steamy
cradled in my hand
warmth spreading
through my fingers
through my mouth
into my chest
the aroma
sharp and clean
a clear voice whispering
inside my head
spoon clinking
against the cup
against the saucer
amber liquid
swirling in circles
the faint hint
of berry colored
lipstick on the edge
of fine china
