PHIDELLIA'S TEAHOUSE AND ANTIQUES
121 Peel St
10 a.m. to 8 p.m. daily
There, you're here, but it was inevitable
that we would rewrite the plan. Loose leaf tea
has such allure, pulling us from our table
at Phidellia's. Those shelves are as giddy
as girls, all dolled up and flaunting cups. Blends
pester affectionately, brood like sisters
seeking attention. You sniff jars, find a friend
in Sweet Almond, but a look almost lists
for I've dwelled overly long on Alcott
and we haven't yet touched on Millay, Sapho
or Bronte! Two a-mused by more than pots.
"You see haiku. Well, I see Meg and Jo-"
"-Love, Et Cetera," You tease, such soft praxis,
so I kiss those cheeks with tender ekphrasis.
*For Bet, my sister who I love deeply.
A contemporary sonnet, as loose as they get.
The address of Phidellia's is 121 Peel St... One to one fit perfect, yes ;)
Blogging this next week.
