Crying over spilt coffee?

The smell of coffee wafted by the wind gives rise to a whirlwind of memories..

of coffee and cold winter nights... of harmless, inane talks about life, professors, crushes, ambitions and movies, punctuated with laughter and yelps of opinions....

of a now- empty armchair, rocking to the tunes of the past...

of coffee get togethers turning into impromptu street plays..

of shining tumblers in marriage halls, carried around by bustling people...

of internship and the coffee room escapades and then planning for further escapades there....

of glorious sunsets watched through mists of smoking coffee....

Can I please have my spilt coffee back?

I can almost smell freshly roasted coffee beans being ground in the typical Chennai coffee powder shops. Nice post!

Hemamalini said...

@neelam..it is an exclusive coffee that can be had only in a certain place in Rajasthan!!
ofcourse that coffee as well as the conversations that was downed with it!!

Neelam Prabhu Gaonker said...

the conversations that brewed up over the coffee is what made it so special...!! not to forget the arguments too..remember "feminism sucks!!!" :p :p
