Why, I would say it is a Haiku: 5 7 5, except there is no reference to the season.  

wait, HOLD ON A SEC!

Okay, I'm back!  I wrote a poem this spring, orginally a Haiku, but it morphed into something much longer.  It was the first time I discovered Bean Around the World in Victoria, in April.  The energy in the place was stunning; there was an intellectual buzz in the air, making me feel like I had stumbled into 17th century Vienna (minus the stuffy wigs).  Naturally I had to capture the moment.

Interesting that no one took advantage of your offer to make fun of it, before composing their own..... ;P

I'm not going to bother; I do so much technical writing at work, I'd surely bugger it up.

I'm afraid my poetry writing ability runs much more like this:

There was a young feller named Bresseau,
Who woke up each day to Espresso,
He made it with care,
But it got in his hair,
And made such a terrible messo.

Said:

How I love coffee
Every sip, every latté
Every Godshot, yum.


So... does everyone already know what kind of poem this is?  And if you make fun of it... YOU have to write one too.

Okay I'll make fun of it.......

5,7,5 Haiku is for beginners.   Like Haiku on training wheels. <big tongue in cheek grin here folks> Try 3,5,3 Haiku for a challenge....

Aroma!
Coffee summons me.

Ever feel compelled? Really compelled! Well, I have only one failing (or so I have been told on numerous occasions by many people). <wide mischievous grin plays accross my face> I am compelled to mess with other peoples verse converting it from 5,7,5 to 3,5,3. Please don't condem me. It is a sickness! <A serious expression with a hint of a smile here.>
