Fill my cup

with a steamy ginger tea

with a hint of elaichi

sweetened with two heaped spoons of sugar

and I shall drink deep …. for a moment.

 

Fill my goblet

with aged blood red wine

produced by barefoot grape-stomping

a whiff of which immerses in its ruby embrace

and I shall infuse it with my soul … for a moment.

 

Fill this tumbler

with ice water

from a freshly melted glacier

fulfilling in this simplicity

and I shall quench my thirst … for a moment.

 

but, only for a moment

cause in this life of abundant choices

all tempting and calling to be taken

how can I satiate on only one passion.
