Coffee Grounds

Gilded promises sealed with a cocoa kiss,
Reassurances amidst flowing sounds;
Just one detour in the chestnut woods,
And all that remains are coffee grounds…

  1. Ineresting poem. Wish I knew more about it. Speaking of coffee grounds, sometimes I take the coffee filter, scrape off most of the grounds and make a painting with the filter, then add water colors. Fun use of coffee grounds. Brazil has such great coffee for drinking and for painting. LOL


    1. πŸ™‚ Thanks. Oh that sounds very nice. good use of the coffee grounds. I’ve tried to liken the coffee grounds to something that had a lot of richness but now lies barren… πŸ™‚

  4. Such a great poem! It’s so clever in its shortness. It reminds me of the poem Viengar, by Roger McGough – also so powerful in its shortness πŸ™‚ Great work!
