stirring thoughts


stirring thoughts


Two sugars in my coffee
My spoon begins to churn
My mind becomes all milky
Over a girl I haven’t met

Sweetened thoughts of her
Swirl in my caffeine head
As if they were blended
By the lazy ceiling fan

Sinking into the whirlpool
Notions spiral out of control
The fan continues stirring thoughts
While my coffee is getting cold


In all honestly, this poem should be labeled as a collaboration because in her poem entitled “no one’s world” my dear friend G. of Short Prose -Fiction ended her wonderful piece with the line “and your coffee’s getting cold.”

Please, take a moment to read her powerful poem that inspired my write; and see how she used contrasting lines in her finale as a delicious exclamation point.

no one’s world.

  1. I feel that way when I go to my favorite treat shop called the ” Fainting Goat ” and see that wonderful case full of gelato. Honey Lavender, Salted Caramel, Guiness…I try one and feel sorry I can’t try another- I miss the ones that I pass over and mourn for it. Until my next visit.

      Sorry, for the delay in my response. My life has been upside down. Thank you for your ultra kind words. They encourage me to continue writing even as sadness
      consumes me. You are so appreciated here.

  3. I love your write here Andrew. This makes me think of the chance encounter on the street, a brief smile, eyes that lock on one another, perhaps recognition? and then both move on. Our fantasies are so rich with the ‘perfect’ person for us.
