The Camaraderie of Tea
An instant bond.
A stranger from a distant land.
Offers a cup of tea.
Expresses a love of tea.
Confesses an obsession with tea.
Shares a new way with tea.
An intriguing bond.
Stories of tea – selections of tea;
an extensive collection of tea.
From one to another – the passion shared.
A tightly-wrapped package.
Never opened before – highly treasured – neatly secured.
Reserved for just-the-right occasion.
An intricate bond.
A precious gift to be shared.
A unique experience to be had.
A rare and exquisite tea to sip with company.
To unveil and explore with a brand new friend.
Brought together by tea.
An unusual bond.
Water purifies – a union solidifies.
Observations are silent.
Leaves dance and magically unfurl.
Aromas lightly hover – slightly intoxicate.
An enchantment takes hold.
A rather distinctive bond.
A sharing of the pouring. Slow silent swallows.
Eyes meet and glisten with approval.
Broad smiles on blissful lips.
Gasps of agreement – tea going down smooth.
As smooth as silk.
A life-long bond.
Steep the leaves again.
