Aroma

Chocolate Chai Tea

steam rising
 in shimmering ribbons
carrying with them
a divine essence
that permeates the air

 just a whiff
of this aroma's float
rouses the desire
inculcating need
as the scent is savoured

 fragrant wafts
spicy, sweet and pungent
saturate senses
 thoughts drift on vapours
deliciously intoxicating
