Our host today at http://www.ethicalela.com for Day 19 of #VerseLove is Dr. Stefani Boutelier of Michigan, who invites us to write a poem without a title and invite others to give the poem a title. You can read her full prompt, along with the poems of others, here.
Today, I've written a riddle-type poem (Haiku two lines short of a Haiku sonnet), open-ended, to invite readers to title this poem AND to add two seven-syllable lines to the end to make it a true Haiku sonnet if you wish. I'll add my title after the photo at the bottom so you can see what my initial title was. It's subject to change :). never have I met anyone who on first taste liked its bitterness sipping piping hot aromatic wakefulness swallowing its truth ah, but sip by sip its addiction is for real~ can’t live without it!
The title I initially landed on was Coffee and Poetry – original, I know! Perhaps you can figure out a better title for this poem! Leave ideas in the comments, please.

Kim, your first haiku I was still wondering about what it was, but the second is unmistakable. Such images–“piping hot” and the magical phrase: “aromatic wakefulness” Beautiful! I also like how you added an extra space before the last line, which may be a good title: “Can’t Live Without It” However, there isn’t a better one than “Coffee and Poetry,” I’m sure.
