Just Popping By…
I found a Starbucks Coffee cup
And when I bent to pick it up
I hesitated ‘ere I should
Disturb the slumber of these woods
I didn’t drop it; Twas not me
Affecting such douchebaggery
To toss it down without a thought
Of the karmic offense he hath wrought
Or is it art? You can be sure
The villain’s heart is not as pure
As mine. My soul is free of sin
I put my cups in recycling bins
And as I wrote this in my head
My words for nature in her stead
I clevered together this poem
My soul afire I hurried home
To put word to eternal pen
I blogged and blogged and blogged and then
My mind returned: that Starbucks Cup
Is still there. I never picked it up.
Well, not totally true☺ I drank every last drop.
This little Starbuck treat was from a gift card from my blogging friend Jeri! You can visit her here at her new blog.
Aren’t bloggers the best?!
FYI…Did you know that emerald green is the 2013 Pantone Color of the year? Surprise, surprise…Starbucks logo color☺
Just popping by to wish you a lovely weekend!
I am on my way to Texas tomorrow…to see little man. Be still my heart.

Yum! I love Starbucks. Have a safe journey.

Love this, and now I’m craving a Starbucks. 🙂
Oh how I miss starbucks!!!!!!!
I thought Starbucks was everywhere?
There are only 1 or 2 in Paris. The corner café culture is too strong in France. Starbucks wouldn’t really do well here…
Too American for over there♥ I get it. You just keep educating me…
That wasn’t my intention:) Believe me, I’d be their best customer if they opened one in my town!! My favorite is caramel frapucino with cream on top:)
Cute! I’m glad you drank it all! Have a super trip to see the Little Man! Can’t wait to see your shots when you return!
Oh yes, and emerald green is the colour of our boat upholstery. Who knew it would be 2013’s colour?
So funny that we had the same thing on our minds! Have a great time with Little Man!
Cute little poem….my daughter writes great poetry, but alas not I. And that Starbucks treat does look tasty. Have a great trip to Texas…wish I was joining you.

I like this
Save journeys my friend, and have fun with little man. Many hugs!
I have received your hugs and friend it warms my heart.
Have a safe trip to see your little man! By the way, when you travel…..do you pass out BLOG CARDS for your blog to everyone you meet? If you don’t, let me know and I can create you blog cards to use!
You are something else…in a good way that is. Blog cards? I guess I don’t? Fill me in…
A blog card is just like a business card. For us, every time I ship out one of our eBay orders, I ALWAYS place a blog card to Nikitaland in their shipment. This gets the word out about your blog – – gets new followers — and new friends. For instance, your blog header is done in purple, so if I was to create you a blog card, I would create something in that color scheme. I would add your blog address, and if you have a “tag line” for your blog, I would include that too, and/or an email address too. Whenever we head out…..we pass out our blog cards for Nikitaland to everyone we meet. (IE: when we go to a pet store, or the grocery store, or anywhere – – just pass them out!) For instance, one of my blog followers bought lots of things from us on eBay and we have become friends! Let me know if you would like my help!
Thank you for all of that great advice!
So delicious! I’m jealous.
I would share if I could☺
Oh this was wonderful, loved it to the very last drop, I mean word!!
Well doesn’t that look good- I could sure go for that right about now.
Great poem & I love the Starbucks shots. The emerald green is such a beautiful color.
Thanks for stopping by my blog & leaving a comment. I appreciate your thoughts.
Have a great time in Texas!
What an awesome gift! I love the way she worked the word “douchebaggery” into the poem. Have fun in Texas!
