fragrant infusion art

Ceremoniously  
predominantly  
male rite  

chaste hands cupped  
into humming prayer  
Berber rugs  
hang  
 
transformed  
through  
leafing  
 
bundled into  
a silvery kettle  
he pours water  
slowly a haze stream  
is running free  
 
upon spearmint  
inhaling  
mystic  
aura  
 
preparing  
the pot  
with first  
brew  
 
imbue  
your tea  
by keeping  
the first  
glass  
aside  
 
cook  
burnt  
caramel  
 
color  
of loving  
stirrings  
 
raise  
high  
let  
breathe  
 
warm  
humble  
offering  
 
you  
Guest  
 
fondly  
drink  
 
this  
water  
of life
