coffee suite

columbian roast
curls hips sunnyside up
giggles pop pop pop


last year this time
we sifted grains not grinds
through our fingers


sipping on you
flavor lingers into night
daily ritual

For more thoughts on coffee, visit, Sunday Scribblings

This is obviously about more than coffee. It is graceful suite of sweet haiku variations. A very interesting response to the prompt.

Coffee used as some great metaphors there.

LOVE this. Great sounds, concise and efficient.

Wonderful Haiku variations.. very interesting .. I love the second one.. last year this time we sifted grains not grinds!! :)

Thanks for your comment.. I am on the look out for critics.. because if people dont tell me what they find wrong with what I write, how will I ever grow as a writer? but doesn't work!! I think you were the first to notice the comment!!

Efficient and enjoyable, like a good cup of coffee should be.

totomai said...

nice set of haikus, particularly liked the 2nd and one. effective metaphor.


regarding your comment in my post i thought the prompt was extended to daily addictions hence my post wasnt related that much to coffee

I could never write like you - they way you capture the moment.

I really envy people that can write haiku's. And yours are good too.

I like how you used the metaphors - one can take things any way they like with these.

Thanks for your invite. I'll come participate when I have a little more time - right now I'm in the middle of harvesting apples - fun, but time consuming!
