The Miracle of Green Tea

Written by: Tahera Mannan

Fresh virgin leaves
Green as the dewy grass
Hiding a golden miracle
As it meets warm water
Soothing to the core
As it uncurls and spreads
A ray of morning light
In every sip
A little sweet
And then a bit bitter
Caressing dry lips and throat
Purifying the soul within
The miracle of green tea
