NaPoWriMo Day 18
Our optional prompt for the day also honors the idea of Saturday (the Saturdays of the soul, perhaps?), by challenging you to write an ode to life’s small pleasures. Perhaps it’s the first sip of your morning coffee. Or finding some money in the pockets of an old jacket. Discovering a bird’s nest in a lilac bush or just looking up at the sky and watching the clouds go by.
For today I am writing an ode to all coffee enthusiast’s favorite coffee blend; cappucino and a Saturday afternoon guilty pleasure of fitness enthusiasts as well. Come sit with me over a cup of cappuccino and a million lovely thoughts.
ODE TO CAPPUCCINO
Oh, cappuccino you’re like
secrets of silver swirly dreams
moments of silence, frosty screams
stronger visions of soft, sweet, irreplaceable joys.
Thank you for
being pure, light, alluring;
beautifully crafted in a whipped snow – white
Oh, how I love your
choco – colored clear reflections
warm, unstirred, floating hopes
sweet, hot bits of serenity
delicious criss-cross fantasies.
You are lovingly
blended by delicate hand
stored in a cup, freshly designed,
Now the window panes, soaking with rain
against the ivory painted walls
rhythm blues played again
around cozy, midnight blue couches.
millions of thoughts wondering about
soothing, empowering, mirrorball of the soul.
ahhh! how I longed for my sweet cappuccino
You are my cappuccino
the sweetest version
with a bitter after taste
and I love you that way
sweet and bitter
doesn’t matter anyway
