Espressoย Escape

The ABC Wednesday Train rolls into station E this week, and I get down for a cup of strong coffee in the rain. ๐Ÿ™‚ Want some Espresso, folks?

Silent pitter patter on my window sill
Clouded skies are my companion still
Drops of dew slide down the window ย  ย  ย  ย storm
This silence does calm my mind a lot ย A fierce ย  is
All heated thoughts shall stay forgot ย  ย  ย  ย  ย  ย  ย  ย  ย  on
Mind storm washed afar by another ย  ย  ย  ย  ย  ย  ย  ย  ย  ย  out
Dark night I shall embrace real soon ย  ย  ย  ย  ย  ย  ย  ย  ย  ย  side
Through the cloud, shines the moon ย  ย  ย  ย  ย  ย  ย  ย  ย  ย  ย but
Escape from soul burning thoughts ย  ย  ย  ย  ย  ย  ย  ย  ย  ย  I now
Embers that sparkle even in water ย  ย  ย  ย  ย  ย  ย  ย  ย escape
A desire emanates so from within ย  ย  ย  ย  ย  ย  ย  ย  from
To dance in the rain, wash all sins ย  ย  ย  ย  ย  ย one
Yet Iโ€™m unable to brave the storm ย  ย  ย within
So for now, my escape is indoors my soul
Under blankets, alone with tears
Escape with a mug of espresso

Handle is a separate line folks ๐Ÿ™‚

Poetry & writing are to me, a breath of fresh air in a life that is sometimes covered by the smoke of sorrow or self doubt. They also become the sweets I share to celebrate when life offers me a reason to. But most of all, they are to me, my life. For each word I write is a piece of my heart, a thought that just had to find its way into the world.

  1. Ah!! Wouldn’t it be lovely to have an Espresso Escape on a stormy night?? ๐Ÿ˜€

    Every cloud in the storm has a silver lining…and a Moon to shine through it.

    Lovely poem!! Ingenious!! Clever Idea!! Loved it!! ๐Ÿ˜€

  2. This is so amazingly beautiful Leo! After reading your poem, i too feel like having a cuppa coffee ๐Ÿ˜‰
    But this part ‘Under blankets, alone with tears
    Escape with a mug of espresso’ truly touched me!

    • yeah, I know Jaspreet, reading it makes me crave for coffee too ๐Ÿ˜€ yummy ๐Ÿ˜‰

      keep visiting, and have a great week too!

  4. Beautiful Post. You Have Said About The Troubles That Obstruct Our Way & Life Like Storms.

    And In Another Angle, Excellent Advertisement of Espresso Coffee.

    Fabulous, Fantastic, Marvelous, Mind Blowing!!!!!!!!!

  5. That’s a wonderful take on the theme. I enjoyed your poem and espresso photograph. I can almost smell the coffee beans surrounding the cup.

  6. You are really very imaginative! ๐Ÿ™‚ Thumbs up!!!

    Love that espresso and yes, when escape can’t be done outside, we can do within the confines of our comfort zone (bedroom) with a mug of espresso, but I love cafe latte or tea! ๐Ÿ™‚

    Good morning… ๐Ÿ™‚

    • I’m trying to be imaginative Amity ๐Ÿ˜‰ hope its working..

      yeah, we have to turn inside for comfort at times.. glad u liked it ๐Ÿ™‚

  7. Wow! This was amazing, both parts! So creative, loved it! ๐Ÿ™‚

    I hope the “alone with tears” part was just poetic…because you’re not alone…look at all these wonderful comments!

    • thanks CM.. yeah, I know I’m not alone with tears, but then again, we all are alone in a bigger sense.. ๐Ÿ™‚

      glad u liked it..! ๐Ÿ˜€

  8. Aaahhh .. minus the tears, the espresso escapade into the depths of your thoughts and soul, while staying indoors on the stormy day – a perfect image!!!
    The visual is HOT!!!! ๐Ÿ˜€

    Excellent imagery, Leo! WOW!

    • hi Kavita ๐Ÿ˜€ yeah.. the espresso escapade is really needed sometimes, and a perfect image indeed ๐Ÿ˜€

      glad u liked the visual.. thank u ๐Ÿ™‚

  9. liked the handle best ๐Ÿ™‚ looking around your site, i am impressed by the clarity and expressiveness across several genres… very nice.

  10. Stunning visual poetry. The way you reiterate escape in the poem makes the espresso time seem a welcome change. Thanks for the One Shot (I enjoy a double shot in my latte) cheers

  11. The coffee cup an art form all it’s own – and the verse is outstanding

    Thanks for sharing with One Shot

    Moon Smiles

    • hi Moondustwriter ๐Ÿ™‚ glad u liked it.. its called shape poetry, and I’m still a beginner at shapes I think ๐Ÿ˜‰

      Leo smiles back at the moon ๐Ÿ™‚

  12. Difficult modern poem. So lucky to have change of text color now. It makes it do more. I’m reminded of Carly Simon’s clouds in my coffee. Anyway I heard it and saw the storm brewing. Good work. Gay

    • thanks Cannon.. glad u liked the work.. yeah, the change of color does make the poem do more, and of course, the handle being a different line, the color change helps ๐Ÿ™‚

    • nothing much to teach, Harshika. write the poem, and then arrange the alignment i guess ๐Ÿ˜€

      thanks for the wishes ๐Ÿ™‚

  13. Your comment about the handle finally clicked with me. Very talented. Must have taken quite a while to get this page together. Good for you!
