In my coffee...

Hong Yi ~ Coffee Cup Stains Portrait
This portrait was inspired by Jay Chou's song/album Secret.
(Jay Chou now has a wax model at Madame Tussaud's mueum in Thailand.)
Her blog is Oh I See Red
She paints in unusual mediums and has a Master Of Architecture from the University of Melbourne.

In the coffee season
Your taste was warm
And lingering

I sipped
Content in the
Flavour of
Your beauty

I drank my cup
The fragrance of
Our virtual heaven
Longing for the warmth
To last

You had finished yours
While it was hot

Huffington Post reported that she made a portrait from 750 pairs of socks

A poem as lovely on the surface as it is in the metaphor. I also love your header picture. Did you do it?

I love how people are so creative. Their imaginations know no bounds. She seems very talented.
You tribute to her work is lovely, as is the thought of a cuppa coffee now.

This is just so good. The metaphor is perfect, too - you had finished yours when it was hot. Yup. Been there. Really good writing. What an intriguing artist - a coffee painting!

Great metaphor in this! Wonderful!

That last stanza was telling of their relationship ~ Well done ~

This is smart and clear, and it's about coffee (sort of). I love it. That ending is chilling. Really, this is fantastic. And that artwork reached into my chest and stopped my heart beating for a full five seconds before releasing it. I'm off to look up more. Thank you so much for sharing this.
