Steep the fragrant blossoms
and pluck the grapes
from the vine
Slice the ripe oranges
And sweeten the wine
Draw a bath
of fresh scented roses
in its relaxant power
Lie back closing your eyes
the Lotus flower

Alright! I just found my new shopping list! Sign me up! (love the gentle rhymes, the foundational vine and wine… anchored by the unexpected recline. That took my brain in its hands and clicked with a snappy “FWONK” that felt so satisfying and lovely. really great Christine. 😉
