Bliss time again,
Gawd, I love it so much!
Nowhere to be on a Sunday morn,
And a mug of my crutch
To pep up the day before it begins,
All snuggled and sipping in time
To words that I read and some that I write,
A pleasure so simple but fine.
Prep for some comments!
I’m ready to roll
In and out of my favourite blogs.
All calm in here,
Though grey outside,
The weather has gone to the dogs.
Thunder and lightening
Accompanied my dreams,
Flashed in at my window pane,
I woke through the night
With sadness, no fright,
But a heart aching with pain.
All better now, dreams are so strange,
Especially when I can’t recall
What passed through my mind as I lay sleeping.
Maybe that’s wiser for all.
Though heavy the skies,
My heart is renewed
With a cup of the freshest of brew
And time to peruse,
Chat with my muse
And catch up on all of the news.
So cheers little coffee bean!
My days wouldn’t start
Quite so well
If your scent and your flavour
Did not endeavour
To rouse me. It would all go to hell.
Mornings spent trying to awaken.
Giving my old body a shaking,
But no need for that, cos you’re right on hand.
Yes, you my coffee, are grand!

MMMMmmmmmmmmmmm A good cup of Quality Hot Java with the words of good friends close by. There is not much better in this world. I am a coffee addict, and kind of a snob sometimes too. Coffe is to me what fine wine is to many. I savor it. Anyway, It is about time someone gave our little beans the respect they are due. Wonderful poem, in story, content, and theme. Thank you friend.
I’m not even a snob about it! I think I would eat the beans whole if that was all that was on offer! Just wouldn’t be able to start my day without it. Waking up to its scent is what wakes me up. Hubby is very good at bringing me coffee in bed. Maybe he knows I wouldn’t get up otherwise. 😉 x
LOL me too. Don’t get me wrong, I am all about the FREE coffee at work too, But being an avid cyclist(coffee is such a big part of the bicycling culture), and also having had a niece that worked as a barista for a local coffee chain (NOT STARBUCKS thank god) I got kind of spoiled and learned a lot about what I really like and dislike in flavors, aromas, regions, etc.
Good to know we share the same love for the ALMIGHTY bean!!!!!
God, I’d be a wreck if I knew anyone who worked as a barista. Quivering all over at the thought of all that caffeine. Obviously addicts the pair of us. 🙂 x
No doubt. Have a wonderful day. I appreciate you.
BTW. The quivering would not be the thought of the caffeine. That would actually be the caffeine itself my friend. LOL. just saying……..
Yeah, I’ve had that too. Lol. The jitters from too much of it. Just nipping off for my next one. Have a great day! 🙂 x
What a lovely Ode to coffee – me hmm I don’t mind my skinny Latte or my Capuchino – but I prefer iced coffee yes in winter too…I know call me crazy. One day at work I was exhausted from not sleeping the night before – they had a coffee machine – the real kinda coffee – I had 7 cups- double strength – that was my first buzzing around the office and bouncing off the walls day to the point I thought I’d throw up! 😉 x
Funnily enough the one I remember sharply being on a total buzz with was years ago. I was working in a disco in Greece and had had a late night the night before so started drinking cafe frappes to wake me up. I had too many and was jittery all night. But kinda nice too. Lol. 🙂 x
Writing now from under the covers trying to block out his snoring lol oh dear I feel for you I didn’t like the experience after a while in the beginning it was fun though. 🙂
Under the covers! Lmao! Whit ye like, missus! I’m still not out of my bed, moved on to the next coffee and now you’ve got me laughing. The image of you with the sheets over your head and hubby snoring away is priceless! I might not need another coffee after this. That’s really wakened me up now. 🙂 🙂 x
The sheet is pulled up anyone would think its Halloween it’s 10.45 of the pm here lady quit yet laughing 😉 bit hard to breathe though- don’t spill now 🙂 x
Hubby’s just arrived home from a pointless work exercise because it is blowing a gale here. And I’m still in bed. So many blogs to catch up on. And he’s just offered another coffee. 11.50 a.m. and I’m good for another wee while of catch up.
No spilling it. No chance. Just watch you don’t suffocate! 🙂 x
I was about to say I am so I shall go & forgive typos it’s friggen dark in here – night hun enjoy the day with hubs. 🙂 x
Sleep well. 🙂 x
Ode to the first cup! love it! I share your sentiments except when I wake early, pour my cup, sit down to read or write and my son wakes and yells “mom! mom!” ugh, switch gears, time for snuggles. But, oh, how I love that first cup!
Nothing else would happen for me without it. 😉 Can barely move till I’ve caffeinated myself. My crew know that now and supply the caffeine. 🙂 x
