Lapis Lazuli Cup

Royal-Milk-Tea
Lapis Lazuli cup
    That accompanies me
of you, filled with coffee, inside
    broken
intimate earth that dizzies,
outside heaven and sea
    that surrounds me

Coffee
   evoking laughter
kind gestures
   honest gazes
from friends and lovers
   soft and milky Arabic smell
both, united
    in the docile to and fro
of the ever-present memories

Cup
   heaven and sea
that surrounds you, earth.
lapis lazuli
   beautiful color
that dares you to the unknown
   oh sensual profound
element that carries you

Thank you cup
Thank you Arabic grain

earth, sea and heaven
faithful and conscious companion
that eliminates exasperating solitude.
