Freshly ground

I can still smell

The freshly ground

Coffee beans,

Sitting in the jar

Behind me

On the kitchen

Counter.

I spent

Just a few

Minutes

Grinding

The beans

By hand

This morning,

With a little

Complaining

About the sore

Shoulder,

As I cranked

Slowly

With the handle,

And stuffed more

Beans

Into the hopper.

Now,

I know why

I did it-

The smell

Alone

Is worth the ache

In the shoulder.
