1. Inspired by your photograph
    and as an entry into an Allpoetry contest held by ea
    here's my poem:

    Rich coffee smudge
    on a mug of porcelain
    Rest for the photographer
    camera clue in the background

    Usually neat as a pin
    no sugar crystals astray
    Did you catch your best shot
    or raptured by aroma – she got away?

    Setting down her hat of khaki
    tapping a painted nail on her hot cup
    She's been watching you too
    and the Joe that you sup

    Tailing the trail with a snap or a pen
    an offering to the rag
    with a spin and a grin
