Chai in the evening

There were dregs of cardamom
in the bottom of my cup
like tiny sandy rivers
carrying me closer to my mom.
Swirling steam rises
from my tiny glass
tasting and remembering
moment after moment with her.
Sitting alone in my chair
thinking of her wisdom
her grace
her way.
Wishing she were here
drinking the last
dregs of cardamom
in my cup.
