Impressions


Another day
coffee grind
cup view
shapes…
she’s holding
right  hand
trustfully
on the bark of tree
left hand feels the
rose crystals
in the pocket
what is
behind
not so
important
when wild life
comes close
projecting
her fear
she foresee
his shade
nose catering
air shift
ears…
locators of future
arrived to
check her
decision
two black dogs
she stops
with one word
gesture…
she reads:
“Old coffee grounds
make an excellent
facial
exfoliant…"

  4. Well - I do wonder sometimes if some of the things we throw away (like old coffee grounds) might have another use! You have some very interesting imagery in this poem, Humbird!

  5. There's a relaxed lilt to these 'impressions' that so naturally draws the reader in.

  6. I had to smile at the end. Sometimes what we think may be profound turns out to be a simple mundane thing, like your last words here. Good write.

    It might just do that. Dead skin scales may need to be scraped off!
