Coffee For One

Coffee for One

Slowly the morning awakens
Slipping softly into the new day
While pastel dreams
Still paint the horizon
With pensive desires

Water, filter, coffee grounds,
Click the switch, wait

The first song of the day
Finds the birds in chorus
Long before the sun’s face
Peeks its golden head
As veiled visions evaporate

The last gurgle of perking,
cup, sugar, cream, pour, stir

Coffee for one
at the kitchen table
sips of morning pleasure 
while the mind remembers
when coffee was for two

    I agree with Anne-Lise, I hope the coffee was a good cup of coffee! This write took me right into it, and I felt like I was the person waiting for the coffee, to start the day! I really enjoyed reading this masterfully written poem this afternoon! What a delight it was to read this very well written piece, Great work!!
