BrewNSpew Cafe – October 1, 2018


Welcome, coffee and tea lovers and anything in between. It’s good to see you here at the BrewNSpew Cafe where the drivel can raise an eyebrow or two. Even selfies enjoy the entertainment here at the cafe. By the way, gambling is not permitted.

“The items people own reveal something about the owners. Every quaint item that a person selects to surround themselves with has a basic quiddity, the essence, or inherent nature of things. As a people, we assign a value meaning not only to the things that we presently possess, but also to the items destined for one generation to hand down to the next generation.” ― Kilroy J. Oldster, Dead Toad Scrolls

Word of the week – quiddity (noun) – 1) the real nature of a thing; the essence 2) a petty or trifling distinction; quibble. Synonyms – essence, heart and soul, inwardness, nitty-gritty, pith, substance, haecceity.

 our nature or quiddity oft confused

methinks oddity reveals the truth

but unspoken words we question

concerns run endless circles

purpose without purpose

stalls nitty-gritty

and heart and soul

let’s ponder

act on

      Me too! I get the words from Merriam-Webster. There are words I’ve not heard of, indeed.

    here is my take on the prompt, Eugenia.

    the quiddity of love so strong
    mending broken hearts
    day by day

    I’m just now getting around to seeing your contribution for ‘Quiddity’. I think you’re right there is truth in one’s oddities. My poem, Am I Weird that you shared using this prompt speaks of my own peculiarities without naming them. I think we all have them and there’s nothing wrong with being weird a little bit. Thanks for hosting and encouraging me to expand my creative energy. Have a good weekend, dear friend!
