Cozy keeps me company, gently placing it upon the pot, a quiet friend.

Sitting by the fireplace afterward, I think of what is and also not.

My hands help me to remember the ones of long ago.

The agile fingers of then as I gaze at those of now.

Each wrinkle, every line I trace, tells of time and use.

Watching the flame as it flickers so silent inside of me.

Smiling while I wait, for the cup of Chamomile tea.
