Treasure Island

Sandi J Holland


Tall, Dark & Handsome


My coffeepot is my friend.
It's wonderful
In that he asks not
What I can give,
But lives
To give to me.
His tastes are my tastes.
His desire my desire,
To share a rich, steamy cup
Of liquid conversation,
Heavenly dispensation,
Which he has first tasted
For me.

My drip coffeemaker has a black housing, and also when the carafe is full it's dark too. Tall. Dark. Handsome. The best kind, lol. From my chapbook 'Sweet Aromas: A Book of Coffee Poetry.'

Poem of the Day

poet Helen Hunt Jackson

The month of carnival of all the year,
When Nature lets the wild earth go its way,
And spend whole seasons on a single day.
The spring-time holds her white and purple dear;
