*What is it about a rich cup of coffee That breaks up each passing day Sipping the brew Enjoying a view Listening to what others have to say. The aroma awakens our senses Our pallets alive to the taste We partake of the drink We pause as we think Then move on with our day in some haste. Is coffee a part of reflection A habit to fill in our day An addiction of course But a passage of sorts A cup of coffee is the adult sort of way. I’m sitting here drinking my coffee beginnings of the new day taste and aroma aside this cup of coffee must abide … until the next one happens my way. *

Though I’m not an avid coffee drinker, I can relate with your writing, Penny, whenever I drink my tea 🙂
Thanks Yoshiko, I enjoy both beverages, at different times in different settings! 🙂
Superb and Energizer Post 😀
Full of freshness and taste 🙂
🙂 :), Happy Monday! 🙂
I’ve just finished a cup of coffee (my second for the day) – all too quickly. Three days a week my best friend and I go for a cappuccino after hydro-therapy. We sit and enjoy our brew while reading the morning paper. It takes up an hour and a half of our morning, but we wouldn’t skip it for quids 🙂
Just excellent Lyn, also the hydro-therapy! 🙂
My favorite is Jamaican Blue Mountain Coffee.
Mine too, Ivonne!!
I am not a coffe drinker but tea. So I had a cup of tea and enjoyed reading the shy butterfly on my phone, as my son has the pad and is away. It is a delightful story and I wished I can read it to the children in our school. I am waiting for the hardback to come out now. ! I totally love it and the illustrations are so sweet too!
Thank you so very much Ute! I am most hopeful that the hardback book will available by early fall this year, if not sooner. 🙂
I had to rush through my cup o’ coffee this morning. I was a bit off on my timing on when I had to be out the door. I was thinking I had 1/2 hr more that I actually did Oh well. At least I still enjoyed a few sips.
Hope that you’re enjoying your day!
xx 🙂 🙂 xx
Thank you, and so the day goes, I hope you’re enjoying the rest of yours also RoSy! 🙂 xo
I only do the one cup per day, but WOW do I savour it! Nicely captured – caffeine enriched, I’d say!
Why thank you, I’ll take that as a very pleasant compliment! 🙂
It makes me wish I could still drink it 😦 My tummy tell me it’s a no-no though! A lovely poem, I enjoyed it.
Yes, the darn ‘ol acid of it all Eleenie. 😦 some of our tummies are more sensitive than others, sigh. Thank you very much for your very nice compliment! 🙂

Thank you z, what a great song, love the upbeat mood, a fun video! do enjoy your Sunday and your coffee too!
But I can’t sleep when I drink tea 🙂
I think I need a coffee now. Thank you Penny 🙂 Hope you are having a great day. Coffee is definitely a great way to start any day. Well, it’s the only way to start the day in my opinion. If I could have a cup of coffee ready for me the moment I woke up in the mornings, I’d be set 😀
I agree with you Alastair! A great way to start the day! 🙂
I have to have my Rocket Fuel in the morning. Gets me going 🙂
