A Scent Of Coffee

Rating: 3.7
The moon has interlocked the night in glass.
Trees are no more than dark designs on grass.
The mood of music opens like a flower.
A scent of coffee validates the hour.

One wonders how two shadows can embrace.
For after all, time leaves so little space.
Only the smallest whisper of a word,
Makes old friends know emotion has been heard.
The landscape is a poem memorized,

scent of coffee validates the hour- Sandra you have perfect command over iambic pentameter, and create amazing lyrical poetry with your beautiful imagery. night fall, moon, shadows, reflecting over relationships- you have created an ambience- serene, quiet- just right for reflection. as always a pleasure to read and learn from, the craft of writing a poem.

Each line unfolds the Sandra in them, Each word sparkles like a glowing gem. Imagery speaks softly of her knitting craft, How finely the Nature in her poem grafts. With sweet emotions, the words' guitar she plays, Melodius melodis her rainbow being relays. Sandra, I fumble for words, each image is very finely chiseled. Wow! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! !
