Poet's Nook: "Arabic Coffee" by Naomi Shihab Nye

Naomi Shihab Nye reads 'Arabic Coffee' from on Vimeo.

This is quite a moving poem about family, unity, love & understanding that centers on the sharing of a good cup of coffee. With a great cup of java comes memories and traditions & the location where parents/grandparents/extended family share thoughts & journeys with each other and with the children. How quickly we pass through this life - before you know it, our kids are grown & out the house, so for many, having a cup of cafe arabica provides the cornerstone of sharing love & heritage around the table so that kids in turn will pass it on to their children..It's a beautiful thang!
