Day 27: Chai in the Cafe

Day 27, writers often neglect sense of taste, so today's prompt is here to remedy that. Taste often brings back memories and also defines so many experiences.




Chai in the Café

The taste is in the time;
the sounds and swish
of bodies in a café.

The taste is in the heat
in the steamed milk
and the steeped tea.

The taste is in the smells
of baked scones and pies
warm ovens and soft bread.

The taste is in the touch
of your hand holding a mug,
bringing it to your lips,
to your hungry tongue;
cinnamon, clove, cardamom.
