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
