I’ve been working on poetry with my class. Yesterday we tried out Tritinas. It was a real challenge for some kids but they enjoyed playing with this style. So, my slice is a Tritina today. And because my blog is Coffee Fueled Musings the topic is…coffee.
Grasping a warm mug of bold,
dark brew. Starts the morning, promises to excite.
Fills me up inside and trickles into my mind.
Afternoon, a lull in the day and I can’t get sweet coffee out of my thoughts, my mind.
I’m searching for something to jolt me into bold.
Something recklessly poured over ice, a splash of milk, something to excite.
As I put the straw to my lips it begins to excite
me. The possibilities of the surge racing through my mind
wanders into my glazed eyes. Bright, Brighter, Bold.
I begin to believe that the ills of the mind can be excited by a bold brew anytime.
