“Fresh Cup of Tea”

The steam rises from the kettle
As the phone on the counter stays silent,
Creating an uncomfortable scene,
With me standing in the middle of it all.

Another morning where I relive each memory,
The good ones along with the bitter ones,
Toasting the new sun with a fresh cup of tea each morning,
Letting the universe take hold of our destinies.

As the tea leaves mingle with the water,
It is here I know that this small trial is meant to make us stronger,
Not weaker.
So, all you and I can do is hold on a little longer,
Drink our tea,
And watch the sun rise again the next morning
While we are in different countries.

“Beautiful Flower”

The depth of the eyes is never ending,
For they are the portals into one’s soul.
The smile one gives is so inviting,
Inviting the bees to come and find the sweet honey.
Such a beautiful flower
In the form of a person:
The skin is delicate,
Just as the petals are on the flower,
The lips injected with the sweet nectar of honey,
And the eyes draw you in,
Making you fall head over heels.

“The Mysterious City”

The hunt of the bull,
The temple that lives on top of the hill:
All of these things have been instilled in our minds.

Ahead of its time,
In both plumbing and schooling.
It’s hard to believe that this great city is now lost in the sea.

Carthage, Crete, Atlantis.
No one knows the real name of this ancient place
Nor knows what happened.
Ruins and theories,
Evidence and manhunts.
Those connected to the ancient city will never let up.
What was once our home,
Now lies on the ocean floor.
The city
And the palace will forever be lost.
But never forgotten.

“Keeping the Meadows Alive”

The beautiful meadows are filled with red roses.
The softness of the grass under her feet tickled her lightly.
Softly taking steps,
She didn’t want to ruin the landscape.
She wanted to preserve the flowers.
Let them fully bloom.
Once they had fully bloomed,
She would then pick them.
Carry them off to her villa.
For now, these roses will stay.
Stay to keep the meadows alive.
