BrewNSpew Cafe – June 3, 2019


 seasons in balance

bearing gifts for all to see

a celebration

Word of the week flippant (adjective) – not showing a serious or respectful attitude.

Synonyms – frivolous, superficial, glib, carefree, thoughtless, offhand, cheeky, pert, facetious

 just a snippet

on being flippant

wiseacre resistance

to knitted commitment.

the utmost indifferent

mistaken for indignance.

and the eclectic efficient

raised cups of contentment

but wouldn’t admit it.

views may be consistent

yet, be-stirred and distant.

oh, the misled fittest

they can’t buy a ticket

to be brilliant

or omniscient

You’re at the BrewNSpew Cafe, where writers meet



Here’s what is going on at the cafe. On Mondays, I publish a post titled BrewNSpew Cafe. One of my features is I select a “word/expression of the week” and create a composition with my interpretation.

Please join our talented community and challenge yourselves by contributing your own creation using the week by week featured word.

Link your blog to mine with a Pingback. To do a Pingback: Copy the URL (the HTTPS:// address of my post) for the current week’s Challenge and paste it into your post. You may also place a copy of the URL of your post in the comments of the current week’s Challenge post.

Please and thank you for limiting your post to 300 words or fewer.


The prompt will close 5 days from the date of my post. I will post a week after week wrap-up of posts shared by our kindred bloggers.

How about we be creative and have fun!
