I am working on my poetry muscles this month by joining #verselove at ethicalela.com. Today’s model was a Cherita, a poem that tells a story or tale. The form consists of three stanzas- one line in the first, two in the second, and three in the third. I had been thinking about a topic all morning when after lunch it just hit me – figuratively and literally!
Latte – A Little or A Lot?
I was bemoaning the fact that I had nothing to write about.
Fortunately or unfortunately a little story found me. I was looking forward to a chai latte after lunch on this bleak and rainy day.
I loaded up my Keurig and anticipated the warm beverage. So much so that I fumbled the cup and spilled most of it on the counter and onto the floor. Should I be satisfied with the three mouthfuls I saved or brew another cup?
