Relaxation – A Quadrille

Relaxation

Steep the fragrant blossoms
In oil
and pluck the grapes 
from the vine 
Slice the ripe oranges
And sweeten the wine
 
Draw a bath
of fresh scented roses
and recline
in its relaxant power
Lie back closing your eyes
and envisage
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. 😉
