Just like drink sleeves and sugar shakers, poetry has been a fixture in coffee houses across the nation. Coffee is a lot like poetry. The subtle nuances balancing with high notes, swirling in rhythmic perfection - pure poetry. And poems and coffee are usually served with a heaping, helping of love. April is National Poetry Month and so we asked our Facebook fans for haikus about coffee. We soon found out Zoka isn't the only one who could wax poetic about the brew. These peculating poets were kind enough to spill the beans on their innermost coffee thoughts. Coffee Poetry & Haiku

Presenting....Zoka's Beanniks and their coffee haikus

Thank you, beanniks for your amazing words. We'd like to keep coffee haikus going long after National Poetry Month. Submit your haikus to zokablog@portent.com and we'll publish your coffee poem in an upcoming post. Or join us on Facebook for Coffee Haiku Friday.
