Kirkus Starred Review, Firstborn:
"A fantasy that reads like a lost history tome and deftly examines issues of gender...An engrossing story with welcome depths."

Poetry Friday: Whispered Through Steam

 
Whispered Through Steam
 
How many stories
were whispered through steam as cups
clinked women's secrets?
 
 
Lorie Ann Grover, 2013

Ah, stories whispered through steam. I can smell the coffee.

Your haiku opens up the imagination to all the juicy gossip that must have been passed around at high tea over the years-- yes, stories whispered through steam, what an image! I think I could go for a crumpet right about now.

Such secrets! And I love the picture that goes with this storied haiku.

Ruth said...

I love the photo and the haiku! Thank you!

Oooh, I love this! Short, sweet perfection! Thanks for sharing. =)

I agree with Ruth and Bridget. I'm imagining tea, rather than coffee!
