pebbles in coffee


Sunday morning

a cold sleepy grey

forgetting –

we turned the calendar to Spring last week – inside

the man speaks about Momentum

on his TV show – a few grey pebbles rattle

in his words of hope and God loves us

again – I’ve made a coffee

too bitter – my boy’s

legs trundle his tricycle up and back

each time he passes my seat – he sings ‘bye’

a single drop of grey from the heavens

joins my coffee

a long journey


his curious little hands pick up pebbles

from the garden

now they rattle in my coffee

along with the drop of heaven

it tastes sweeter

  1. Still savouring the sweetness of this piece of poetry. I really appreciate the impact your observative eyes add to your lines. This is really beautiful, Andrew.

    Take care and keep smiling.
