“Herbal Pleasure” by Nadira Boddie

Tea is a
beverage to nurture
the soul

The array of
comfort water
warms the body

Lime rivers entice
the taste buds
to take another

sip from the
ceramic nipple
Floral delights dart

across the tongue
like a sweet
fish swimming in

an ocean mouth
Mix berry potion
combined with sandy
sweetener make for
an enticing concoction
A licorice like

liquid stings with
its tart tail
but is assuaged

by the bronze
syrup
Mint soothes

the body
This drinkable therapist
creates a sense

of calm to
the spirit
