Smelling My Own Coffee: Sixty-Five Moments of Thought offers a book of answers that touches hopefully on every segment of life. Focusing on both verbal and nonverbal language, author Carol Samuels examines many aspects of emotions both secret and acknowledged-those that are universal, and those that are unfelt. She expounds on love, hate, loss, quiet encouragement, and faith, exploring the whos, whats, whens, wheres, hows, and just becauses needed to fully experience life and all it has to offer.
Offering a sort of field manual for feelings, Smelling My Own Coffee attempts, through poems, statements, thoughts, and vignettes, to answer or give meaning to words that address the virtues, principles, and substances of life.
Moonshine shimmering on the
Moonshine sparkling like diamonds
on dew frosting the blue grass
Moonshine clear, cool, cold, colorless
yet shining in an air of peacefulness
Moonshine mellow almost shyly showing
one side only to those who peer
Moonshine hypnotically almost mockingly
exposing more than less....
Less than more than the night before
