Coffee (National Poetry Writing Month 2017 #6)   2 comments

My favorite drink
My morning ritual
Something to do besides work
An excuse for conversation
Fuel for a looming deadline
A failed college career
A fond memory
An unhealthy addiction
Brown, opaque water
The roasted seed of a fruit
Coffea arabica or coffea canephora
Eighty to one hundred thirty five milligrams of caffeine
A drink

Morning Ritual (National Poetry Writing Month 2017 #1)   Leave a comment

I stare into the darkness
Of my coffee
As my thoughts percolate
And drop their bitterness to the glass
I swallow them down
With no cream or sugar coating
And go about my day.

Coffee: A Haiku (National Poetry Writing Month #21)   Leave a comment

Without you, old friend
My life would be misery
Morning pleasure brews.
