The power of tea cookies to heal the soul

The small pink box speaks of a simpler time,
Tiny sweet shortbread beckons,
Chocolate piping promises a few moments of relief from the people who pull you or the day that threatens to break you,
And just one will do. 

Until the next one calls out and promises more and better, salvation in sprinkles and nuts,
Just another one will do the trick and leave you whole and satisfied and perhaps ready for a cup of calming tea or at least a spoonful of hope.
