Jasmine Tea

I have yet to find a problem
that a warm cup of Jasmine
can not fix
have yet to find a question
where Jasmine Tea
isn't the answer

there is something about it
about the sound of boiling water
and the smell of tea leaves
about watching the drink darken as it steeps
and the feeling of the steam on my face
as I taste that first sip

there is something about it
that always manages 
to pick me up
to calm me down
to pull me out of my head
and bring me back
from whatever depths I have found myself in
