31 Days of Five Minute Free Writes: Brew


An ode to coffee, my favorite ‘brew’.

Coffee, coffee in my cup,

Helps me cope with our new pup.

When my eyelids are heavy and my words are few,

Please bring me more of my favorite brew.

It’s amazing all the joy I glean,

From a drink that starts as only a bean.

Perhaps it’s a vice, a dreadful addiction,

But one that’s essential for writing great fiction.


You’re welcome. I’m sure your life is richer for having read that profound work.

In all seriousness, it’s not too late to join us for the Write 31 Days challenge. We’re only 4 days in and would love to hear your thoughts, ideas, haikus, poems. The link is here and remains open until tomorrow.


  1. Shannon, aka "Auntie":

    Hey, works for me. Visiting from #Write31Days link up.


  2. Julie:

    So fun! Mine was kinda on the heavier side so this was nice levity. And I say this as I’m about to go walk MY new pup. And brew another cup, of course 🙂


    • Heidi:

      Hi, Julie! I’ll pop over and read your post, I couldn’t come up with anything heavy this time. Best of luck with the new pup. It’s a fun phase but certainly challenging.


  3. Emma Hughes:

    Love it! What a fun, clever poem 😃 I too would write many words of love to coffee- so, so important!!
