Thurbo Estate Darjeeling Oolong

this tea is an attractive mix
of well-twisted, wiry leaves
decorated with downy silver buds

the light amber cup has a pronounced
sweet aroma with light fruity
notes a smooth, creamy

mouth feel introduces flavor
notes of stone fruit and nuts
which some have likened to pecan

oolong cools

the days seem long
though living

while the children
play leap frog
and the oolong cools
to the warmth of your lips
as I remember them

plots against its own containment
with every

(breath)

thing forgotten


After yesterday’s crude and infantile rant
about things that don’t matter,
I felt I owed you a poem.
