Your Name Poem by Joseph S. Josephides

Your Name

Rating: 5.0

In my short coffee-pot
the small bubbles
emitting vapour
whisper your name.

Your name rises,
wishes no sunset
only an endless trip;
already back when departed.

Shanghai, Bombay, Dubai
Hawaii, you bend and return.

The distance is long
from the chest to the brain,
no other space is shorter
when you smile and we chat.

But let me come to myself;
let me rush to anticipate,
fill the small pot up to its lips,
before the last dropp is disappeared
before your name is kidnapped and lost
by the implacable law of evaporation alone.

But let me come to myself; let me rush to anticipate and fill the small pot up to its lips, before the last dropp is disappeared and your name is kidnapped and lost simply beautiful, loved it. coming to rescue urself in this pot before it all disappears, before u r left self-entagled, self-rescued by a name! beautiful

I love coffee and to stir your emotions with drinking a cup and reference to someone you miss is enticing.

A poem filled with potency…I especially like the analogy the aroma of coffee to the remembrance of someone who is valued friend.
