Treasure Island

Sandi J Holland


Seduction


Swirling mocha circles in
The coffee mug.
She twists and writhes
With smooth, sweet invitation.
With a popped, fragrant bubble
She winks and says,
Come.
Drink me.

    Thanks for reading, Rebecca. I'm just a hot beverage drinker, period, but coffee is my fav. I only drink decaf now, after 20 yrs of daily drinking of regular. Have a great day! (Report) Reply

    Coffee is really not my cup of drink, but reading your poem, I might just switch my tea :) love your play of words Sandi. (Report) Reply

    A totally delicious poem Sandi. Right now I am thinking about brewing
    that creamy cup of coffee. Seduced by a cup of coffee. How sweet it is.
    Enjoyed. (Report) Reply

    An enticement, a temptation to drink that sweet mocha.
    Written in a smooth and sweet seduction, A real beauty. (Report) Reply
