There’s a new online café open, the Go Dog Go Treetop Café.
Last week I took the opportunity to drop in and experience the ambiance. The proprietor, Sailorpoet, (or Mr.S as I affectionately call him) has a warm welcome waiting for all visitors and, as well as some cheeky lattes, you may bump into some excellent poets, poetry and maybe a chance for a collaboration or two.
Describing the focus of the café Mr.S said “ I think of coffee shops as places that people go to be social with friends, to meetup with like-minded creative types, or a place shy or introverted people gather in hopes of overcoming their mortal fears and speaking to some interesting stranger across a room.”
During my time there we talked about a poem I had recently written, Seashell, and got into a little poetic jousting in which the following emerged.
She said selling sea shells.
“Sapphire sonnets send submissive salutations savouring suns,
Sometimes sending sweet soliloquies sailing southward.”
Seasick Steve sings sea shanties sucking sharp sherbets.
Stupendous sonnets serenade sick sailors.
Sweeping statements sending sedentary shockwaves speeding.
Sensuous silky slippers sliding.
“So, Saturday swoons,
Stirring sweat stains Sunday?”
“Slip aside sweet sugar.
Set aside said salience
Slippery saliva snails.”
“Sertainly sir.” (sorry)
The Go Dog Go Treetop Café is a wonderful place to hang out, so when you have five minutes please pop over there, you will be pleasantly surprised. (I gave it a 10/10 on Trip Advisor). Please tell Mr.S I sent you, as I think he may be doing 15 per cent discounts for referrals.
Maybe you could add a line or two to our S poem dalliance.
