Ant and the grasshopper

This #napowrimo poem was inspired by a fable I read as a child called Ant and the Grasshopper, about a grasshopper who procrastinates.
This is my interpretation of it, I deeply relate to the grasshopper haha
The picture in question is a coloured print of La Fontaine’s version of the fable by Jean-Baptiste Oudry (courtesy Wikipedia, very fancy)

(Text only)
Ant and grasshopper co-inhabitants in springs
In a world where soru was pay for writers code
Ant wrote and wrote titbits saved for grubless winter
Hopper strummed, synergized on the virtual realm
Glanced at his calendar swallowing pills of unease
Supplies were running low as was motivation

Motivation is random, winter is predation
Loose noose tightens, Hopper leaps to narrow lost seize
Setae falls, monocle over compound eyes helm
Ant refuses victuals, tough love is tinder
Hopper whets and sweats and scrapes through incommode
Sighs at snow, lesson learnt pro tempore- time tings.

Coffee

sonnet (noun)
/ˈsɒnɪt/
a poem- often about love, of fourteen lines using an alternate line rhyming scheme typically having ten syllables per line.

My second poem for #napowrimo is a sonnet
Since sonnets are often around the theme of love, I wrote mine on the what I love most – coffee.

Coffee
A little death, it revives my mornings
The veranda with paati and Marie
Legacy in a cup, echo longings
An embrace from the past, push new queries

Always one is to four by Suma’s steps
I thank Baba Budan from all of us
One seed from Chikmagalur delights next
Steel tumbler and Chicory, adds native sureness

Windsor leaves sour, what might have been flashback
Hop, skip, jump, whee! Bossa Nova plays
No more, Raaja heartaches- yet prime time wacks
And rainy evenings with music awaits

In a latte, mocha, expresso world
A frothy, strong filter coffee girl
