Endless Cup

Holding the vessel and savoring the warmth
makes me feel so light and so free.
Time pauses; this relaxation and rest
adds to my life, peace and serenity.

First thing in the morning
then mid-day with a newspaper look,
a companion with the TV news
or my latest book.

I get anxious when my supply is low,
rush around town from store to store
to find those little purple envelopes,
hoarding as I search for more.

I’ve learned the best day to shop,
relieved when the shelf is stocked.
But with other customers in pursuit,
fear the grocery aisle will be blocked.

Not sure why I’m so obsessive,
held hostage instead of free.
Comfort and serenity be damned,
I need my cup of chai tea
