~ ⚘ ⚪ ⚘ ~ After days of long studies comes the days of rest. My violet dreams were slumber-soft filled with lucent lilies of curling flames born of ever colour known and unknown. And I stood in awe of them as my fears fall back and cower in the shades of my mind.
~ ⚘ ⚪ ⚘ ~ I muse at how quickly my body relaxed. Due to my marjoram'd pillows and sheets of pure silk and eiderdown? Or due to the sips of the lavender tea in my in my teacup decorated with a butterfly motif?
~ ⚘ ⚪ ⚘ ~ I remember the sips in fours as I blew the steam from my cup; The first sip balmed my lips. The second soothed my throat. The third lulled my thoughts. The fourth stilled my soul.
~ ⚘ ⚪ ⚘ ~ Though the tea, the pillow and sheets were had a hand in my nightly rest, the real answer is on my brow - for it was when the night's cool air blew, and where you placed your sweet Morphean kiss.
~ ⚘ ⚪ ⚘ ~ With a smile, I wake. Sat on my golden summer throne located in my marble gazebo; a jewel in my private garden. With thin caryatid pillars, draped in fine doric chitons encircling me. Their sculpted limbs hold up the frieze carved with acanthus that has a stained glass top of peacocks and stargazers.
~ ⚘ ⚪ ⚘ ~ The sheer curtains billow when the eastern winds blow. By me, a gold side table with a mirrored top supported by three Greek key legs. A pewter quill pen with a steel nib and violet feather rests by its clay inkpot; both beside a silver sinuous nouveau vase and a small stack of poetry books of black leather and gilt. ~ ⚘ ⚪ ⚘ ~
Part one of my Jasmine Pearls free verse! (Been having issues with it so I decided to break it down and make it a collection! ^-^) A poem dedicated to 'Jasmine Pearl' tea. Inspired y Queen Kim's wonderful 'Golden Hour' and 'Dream Child' poems. I'm very particular about herbal teas, but Jasmine is one of the many few that never fails to relax me when needed. I'm glad I met a fellow Jasmine tea lover in Queen Kim! ^-^ It was rather challenging but I overcame it! Haven't written something like this since my university days, but I did it! I really hope you enjoy reading it as I enjoyed writing it! Anyone else a tea enthusiast? Do let me know what you think! Queen Lyn *** ~ ⚘ ⚪ ⚘ ~
