Let’s have tea…

Let’s have tea

under the shade

of the mulberry

under the sweet rustling

of its lush leaves

Let’s have tea

no excuses, just you and me

pour me a hot cup

stir the lumps to nothingness

while the wind blows it reckless

Let’s have tea

blended with brisk silences

exuding steaming differences

sip after sip, let’s gulp down

the misunderstandings

Let’s have tea

words won’t come easy

but affections become one

long lost years

languidly come undone

Asha Seth
