BrewNSpew Cafe – October 8, 2018


Welcome, coffee and tea lovers and anything in between. It’s good to see you here at the BrewNSpew Cafe where the chatter can cause an arched eyebrow. By the way, rumor has it constructive criticism is not constructive.

 “Friendship, sweet-resting place of the soul, the gloaming wherein our hearts find peace.” ~ Alphonse de Lamartine

Word of the week – gloaming – (noun) – twilight or dusk. Synonyms – blackness, candlelight, darkness, dusk, gloom, shadow.


 brisk winds blustering

forceful cleansing in action

souls running from souls

with nowhere special to go

 with the gloaming came silence

    How do you come up with your word chooses? I will let this one stew in my brain for a bit to see if it takes root. Right now nothing is forming but I haven’t had even my first cup of coffee yet. I know how can I get from point a to point b, let along write a masterful poem? insert loud laughs You however, did a hum-digger of a job on it!! 👏

      Hi, Cathy! I get my words from Mariam-Webster Dictionary Word of the Day and many I’ve never heard of. Sometimes I get on a roll writing poems and sometimes, I draw a blank. Coffee always helps! 🙂 I’m glad you enjoyed the poem.

      Yes, it was an eerie day when I wrote this setting the stage for my thoughts. Seems today is going to be eerie, as well, with Hurricane Michael heading our way.

    I was going to squeak Roamin’ in the Gloaming at you, but I see you have been given a professional version. Saves me having to run, pursued by missiles.
