Jasmine

Three balls of tightly bound jasmine leaves sink in the steaming teapot.  

As the water seeps in, like green tentacles, the leaves unravel.

They reach out,

the water freeing them of their caged sphere.  

Until the shapes are lost entirely and as the tea is poured,

the long narrow leaves fuse together,

swimming freely at the bottom of the cup.  

 

(Leo Geyer, 2014)
