the air is scented
with swiss hazelnut coffee
a rich aroma
stimulating my senses
to drink it ... or just to breathe

    I'm not drinking coffee at all. I'm only drinking milk but while reading this it seems that I want to taste it esp. this swiss hazelnut you've described in your very beautiful and amazing tanka my dear friend Francine. Thank you so much for sharing & your warm congratulatory comments on my poem. Have a blessed wkend! love lots and big hugs, Leonora

    A coffee company is located not too far from me. You should drive by there if you like the rich aroma of the stuff. Good write as usual Francine.

    oh gosh, it's been a while since I saw your poetry if I missed this one. It's very pleasant. I am not a coffee drinker but I like its aroma when I enter Barnes and nobles book store!!
