Still and silent, the tea kettle waits...waiting, exercising unrelenting patience with statuesque perfection in a timeless tradition.
As the glassy water bath within the kettle's belly fills with champagne-like bubbles, patience begins to take its toll. Like a small child awaiting a surprise wrapped in shiny paper with ribbon beneath an evergreen the night before holiday; the heated kettle gets excited. It can wait no longer.
An endless emergence of steamy vapor erupts from the kettle spout like a bird taking flight. It hollers with a vocal pitch as high as a kite can fly. The mounted energetic pressure is freed from its confinement. Escaping. Fleeting. Freeing itself. A preamble of what is to come.
Again, we wait. This time together. The bubbles cease. The water tempers. The infusion begins; a heaping pinch of garden enters the teapots core, amber saturating the water's crystal translucency; depositing the offerings of each plant's genetic code and frequency with every steeping moment.
The pour. The lift. The first sip entering my mouth, like a portal to the depths of my molecular makeup and spiritual likeness. Warming. Nurturing. Strengthening. Calming. I now hold in cupped hands, the power to free the build-up of life's daily pressures like the spout's own release moments earlier. Relaxing into its aromatic and decadent flavors, I surrender.
Liquid Kauai-grown minerals and vitamins flood my internal cavern, quenching my organs desire for balance and rejuvenation. My heart pumps to a beat of gratitude sending waves of oxygen-rich rivers through my labyrinth of veins and arteries. I am awake. I am alert. I am alive. Alive with clarity. Enriched with the plants alchemy embedded in the infusion, I feel empowered, impermeable, and spiritually renewed.
