One Cuppa Life

As I take a sip of the fresh brew          

Its aroma hits my senses

What is it about a hot cuppa?

That relaxes you and shakes your grey cells,  

Both at the same time

And I look at the warmth of the cup and wonder

This tea certainly has a strong character

And a sweet soul

Will I be able to do justice to it?

Will I be able to utilize its strength to the fullest?

Will its sweetness keep my bitter memories at bay?

Have I been fair to it so far?

What if in the last few sips it loses its taste,

Becomes bland and cold?

Will it be the teas fault or mine?

For I let it sit idle, same age old mistake of not jiving with time

There were other invites, full of warmth and promises

And I chose this one

It demands certain pace and respect for the all things hot

When I finish, will the cup be clean and empty, may be a small drop left

Or will the cream of what I could have had, be in the cup still?

About Soma Mukherjee

  4. A most wonderful piece of poetry my friend,
    and how passionate thou art about a simple
    cup of tea 🙂

    Your writing of poetry is
    likened to that delicious
    taste of freshly made tea 🙂

    Quality is in the tasting, as
    is the reading of fine poems…
