Finding Color


Colors are the building blocks,


and tiny little gears,


that make wheels spin,


in colorful ways,


so ideas come rolling to you.


But a sad thought can stop it,


while a bright thought can pop it!


Shining lights, colors bright,


finding colors.

Confessions of a Bookworn

Yes, I have inhaled the musty aroma.
Yes, I have swooned over a book store.
Yes, I have read for hours on end.
Yes, I have let the stories rock my core.


Yes, I have longed for a shelf of the classics.
Yes, I use my birthday money to buy even ones that are dull.
Yes, I treat myself to adventure and fantasy.
Yes, I trudge through books I need to stop in to mull.


Yes, I enjoy every style, genre, and kind.
Yes, I feel the salty sea in the ocean pages.
Yes, I stop to smell the daffodils in a poem rhymed.
Yes, I feel the bitter cold while a war rages.


Yes, I rejoice when the characters do.
Yes, I feel the heartache when they lose a friend or two.
Yes, I am a bookworm, it's clear through and through.
Yes, I am a bookworm; now what about you?

Confessions of a Barista



I've never had a cappuccino, 
nor have I had a macchiato.
I've never had a latte,
nor a mocha latte,
but better latte than never, right?

I've never had a gibraltar,
nor a straight espresso shot,
I've never had a americano,
nor a steaming hot breve,
but better be breve, than scared of it, right?
