A san san for NaPoWriMo
Rhyme scheme abc,abd,cd, and three images repeated 3 times within the lines.
Also sharing that at dVerse, because today is Open Link Night. I was hoping to share the next part of my sonnet cycle “Song of Fire”, but alas, inspiration has not been kind to me with that sonnet cycle. The san san is a wonderful form, though, so I submit this one instead.

for water’s heat to kiss fresh ground

has kissed those fresh ground beans to coffe
