Extraterrestrial Espresso

A rhyme 👽

Top Story - September 2023

Sharing coffee with our visitor from the stars,

Beneath the sky's canvas, beneath the city's bars.

As steam curls up from the cup so warm,

We'd chat of Earth, in the quiet of the morn.

***

The aroma of beans, the rich, dark brew,

Would mingle with stories, as strangers often do.

I'd tell of our history, our joys, and our strife,

As we sipped from the cups of terrestrial life.

***

In that simple moment, over coffee's embrace,

We'd bridge the divide, in that quiet space.

Two beings, so different, yet seeking to find,

A connection that transcends the limits of kind.

***

The alien's wide eyes, reflecting the stars,

Would search my own, through coffee shop bars.

And in that shared cup, a bond would be born,

Between Earth and cosmos, in the quiet of morn.

    I love the last line of this poem! Such a great idea to share with our alien visitors! Show them the nice things about being here and demonstrate the best we have to offer in coffee form! Hopefully there was no rowdy customers making the barista's life hard

    My favorite line is "The alien's wide eyes, reflecting the stars," I never thought those big alien eyes we all see illustrated would be reflective! Congrats on Top Story!

    Oh Adan, this is simply a most wonderful way to entertain an alien. Oh, I hope he likes coffee, if not throw in some hot chocolate, my favorite.
