One Deep Breath ..... Tea

The participants at One Deep Breath share a haiku, or two, or even three each week, on a given theme. This week's theme is Tea and Coffee. I've missed out on participating a few weeks (as with many other of these weekly challenges or prompts), but I've been able to read over most of them, and it strikes me again what a beautiful form haiku is. It does give us pause, to breathe. There's a sigh that comes with a haiku. A letting down of something. This isn't one of the groups that calls huge numbers to participate (yet), but it is quietly offering peace and tranquility in a lovely way. Thanks to Susan and Jennifer who organise the group.

Here's what came having visited two dear friends this evening, and shared tea with them.

Tea / Chai

sit at their table
for tea, with sweet tastes and talk.
Persian-scented air

This haiku is lovely, I can almost smell the "persian-scented air".

This brought a sweet, scent-memory of jasmine tea. Thanks!

Good description. I'll have to find my tea pot, the taste of chai on my tongue is too good right now.
