Back when I was still teaching, I used to spend my rest time writing poems! Yeah, you read it right… I love writing poems! As a matter of fact, I started this blog through poems. If you try to start reading this blog from the beginning, you will see a roster of poems.
One of these days, I’ll go back to poem writing, but for today, let me share with you one of the poems that I wrote few years back. It is entitled “Coffee Splashing”
There was once a young lady
Who wanted to be somebody professionally
She wanted to turn her dreams into reality
To feel life’s real ecstasy.
With hardwork she achieved her vision
She became successful as what she envisioned
Her life is in real adventurous motion
To be exceedingly happy is her intention
One afternoon she decided to stay in a coffee shop
To have a break from work, in reading she hopped
Instead of just taking a refreshing afternoon nap
She stayed there as her feet gently tap.
The time when she was engrossed on what she is reading
She felt a splash of iced coffee from her top almost near the ceiling
She screeched loudly with the poise that she is keeping
In this kind of situation she is not really akin.
She then heard a very loud bass voice
“I’m so sorry” it seemed to be a noise
“I accidentally stepped on little boy’s toys”
She frets and said “As if I have any choice.”
As she looked to her left with a great facial rage
She saw a man that is almost her age
The guy is wearing a sweater that is actually beige
His face showed great concern that is what she can gauge.
He plead “May I offer to buy you clothes?”
She answered “no thank you I need to be on the road”
I have a commitment this evening and I need to start to load
Better start moving than kicking against the goads.”
She left the coffee shop in great distress
Her corporate attire is in a real mess
She switched on her car engine as she started to feel the stress
She needs to change into her dazzling evening dress.
The next day she went to work ready to do an extra mile
But she saw her table in a different country style
A bouquet of wild flowers welcomed her with a smile
With a note “I’m really sorry for the coffee vile”.
For the next day and the day after that morning
Wild flowers came with the same message that is fluttering
Until two weeks passed by with the same routine coming
She doesn’t know the name of the guy who is consistently sending.
Months passed and she worked harder day and night
There are times when she would work until the morning light
She got promoted with the caliber she have in sight
She will be acknowledged by her boss during the gala night.
The gala night came and she looked stunningly beautiful
This marks the commencement of more years to be fruitful
Her boss announced to the crowd the news that is wonderful
Her promotion in the company to the position that she is grateful.
She became the center of attention that eventful night
Butterflies in her stomach flew in a different height
She went to the side to drink under a brighter light
To shy away from too much attention that she has in sight.
As she took a sip, she heard a voice that is familiar
“You look dazzling tonight quite different from the usual”
She turned to the direction of the voice and pretends to be casual
There the ‘coffee guy’ stood with a smile that is surreal dual.
He looked sharp in his stunning coat and catchy tie
“Mind if I join you as you rest before all these party lights die?”
“Please sit down” she answered as she bite her rye
“What brought you here?” she then asked without a vile.
She then found out that the guy is the son of her boss,
The heir of the company! She almost got lost.
He once again apologized for the coffee that got across
He hoped that she’s not mad for that single embarrassing cause.
They spent the remaining time talking and laughing
There is an instant ‘click’ both of their hearts are humming
He then invited her to the same coffee shop worth returning
To start with a clean slate rather than a coffee that is splashing.
Now years had passed since that eventful day that is calming
They still talk about each detail while they are both laughing
Now they started their own family with God’s blessing
Everything started one afternoon with a coffee that is splashing.
