Written for Poetic Asides November 2017 Chapbook Challenge
Pick an object to write a poem about.
On white china background, in farmyard scene,
are roosters rendered, and sketched in between
leaves and flowers. This coffee mug has style.
Wide-handle hugs fingers, the bowl–caffeine.
This mug is a precious gift from dear friend.
Twice each day I fill with Pacific Blend.
As I sip coffee, lost in reverie,
I smile and think of her, my dear girlfriend.
