Black coffee

NaPoWriMo was first held in 2003. It is an annual project where participating poets write a poem each day of April. There are optional prompts given by the site for writing. You don’t need a blog for taking part. You just need to promise yourself that you will write a poem every day of April.


black coffee —
I sip the aroma
of your love


The prompt at NaPoWriMo asks us to describe one thing in terms of any three of the senses. I choose to describe the coffee in terms of sight (seeing it’s black), taste (sipping it) and smell (the scent/aroma), and also a metaphorical touch (of the person who made the coffee with love, like a mother or a lover).

Poetry & writing to me 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.
