Today for Poetry Friday we will look at a poem written by Countess Arditezza.
Sweet Cuppa TeaElettaria, lit by the new morning sun
Checked in on her sister, the sweet Amomum Her time was closing, she knew from her dream The paper thin pod, was tearing at it's seam Smiling, she glanced at her new siblings below Flowering, emerging as they sway to and fro Their fragrance grew as the sun it did rise But nary a one feared of their impending demise And the farmer did come, with his fledgling behind Each swinging their sword as the sisters combined Fell together in a bushel, their purpose became The Asian spice cardamom, I think was the name Don't shed a tear when a burst bubble in your chai Fills the air with it's scent, they are saying goodbye.
