Who doesn’t love a good haiku?  Don’t know what that is…well it’s a Japanese poem that consists of 5 syllables, followed by a line of 7 syllables, followed by another 5.  Here’s one that I wrote during a recent visit to my favorite place to write…Boston Stoker, in Dayton, Ohio….Ciao!

Little brown fingers

Plucking the beans at dawn

Cappuccino stones

Beans dry in the sun

Caribbean java seeds

Roasted perfectly

Burlap bags stacked high

Seams frayed and edges torn out

Several beans scatter

Delivery here

Coffee beans have arrived at last

Machine grinds fine or coarse

Beatnik music plays

He asks, “What can I get you?”

Macchiato, please.

Brewing and steaming

With small foam of cream on top

Small spoon and sugar

I sit and breathe deep

Caffeine makes my spirit soar

Bliss in a red cup
