The Keurig

Since the moment I held a pencil I've been creating with drawings and words. I believe paintings enlighten and poems entice our thoughts.

A Glint of Humor from the Coffee World

Are we coffee lovers or a tea connoisseur? That is the big question.

The Keurig

The thing in the room

Stands in stature of respect

General Keurig has entered our space

All attendee’s look in anticipation

To the master at its craft

The machine that delivers the rickety, black

Liquid of drug-induced joy.

One-by-one they hover

Each lusty patron grabs a plastic pod

Howls and hoops

Expand the walls.

How do we do it?

You open the top

Insert the pod

And the liquid pours

Sounds easy until the first customer

Attempts the brew.

The pod is upside-down

The pod has a hole in it

Which button do I press?

Where does the cup go?

Urg, Arg…Splish, Splash

A nightmare ensues

Until the coffee is delivered

And peace once again

Has been restored.

Poetry and Painting

I've been writing poems and painting watercolors for many years. I find painting and writing enlighten, enrich and inspire each other. Poems are the place where creativity is at a peak because the boundaries are endless. For me, humorous poems are the most fun to write.
