Treasure Island

Sandi J Holland


Seduction


Swirling mocha circles in
The coffee mug.
She twists and writhes
With smooth, sweet invitation.
With a popped, fragrant bubble
She winks and says,
Come.
Drink me.

    Thanks for reading, Rebecca. I'm just a hot beverage drinker, period, but coffee is my fav. I only drink decaf now, after 20 yrs of daily drinking of regular. Have a great day! (Report) Reply

    A totally delicious poem Sandi. Right now I am thinking about brewing
    that creamy cup of coffee. Seduced by a cup of coffee. How sweet it is.
    Enjoyed. (Report) Reply

Poem of the Day

poet Robert Frost

Some say the world will end in fire,

But if it had to perish twice,
