Little ripples of white cream
as I blow across the surface
bubbles, floating outward
toward the inside of the cup
popping on contact.

In my mind
the bubbles
mold into little tiny ships
in a little tiny sea
exploring the boundaries
of their little tiny world,

And crashing into the walls that surround them.

This is actually a nonsensical piece that began when my imagination got out of hand. It doesn't really have a set meaning.

This is a strange, yet interesting way to look at a cup of coffee. I'm looking at my Starbucks coffee with a new perspective now. :) Good job.

Wow, this is excellent!  I really enjoy the simplicity of it in the beginning, then the twist at the end.  Great work; I have no criticism!

This is gorgeous. I love the imagery and simplicity of it. It's so interesting ot look inside people's heads. The twist at the end was also lovely & unexpected.

I love how you take something simple and transform it into something meaningful. It shows we can find greater insight anywhere in the world if we only look

Thank you for the compliment!

And sorry for my harsh comment on your piece (Peter Pan from a New Perspective). I feel really bad because you gave me compliments, and in return I said your writing is bad.

Thank you for the compliment! And yes, I do think it is sort of blunt... thanks for the criticism as well!

I have never heard of some one describe coffee in this way before. Although it's alittle blunt it was great!

Good job! :}
