Coffee House

My coffee, my house,
   cinnamon and hint of clove
      in a full bodied french roast...
 acrid, bitter, pungent deliciousness
 wafts thought the air 
      before even the eyes are open
         the buzz of conversation over
             the tinkling of spoons stirring
                the clanking of cup on saucer
                  the shooshing of steamy cream
                         into cappuccino
 a lush, rich aroma,
 with the feeling of rightness
            around the edges
                 like a cozy blanket of comfort
                    wrapping around your shoulders
 Sipping in silence,
      watching the sunrise,
          simple serenity to start the day.

    Trudy, great to read your work this evening. This might be the first poem I have read of yours. Here's what I like about your winning write...the only object making noise is your comforting brew... an onomatopoeia delight!! ....I wonder if anyone wrote of the health benefits of coffee...Still have a few more to go! Congrats again. gwendolen

    Gwendolen, thank you for your comment and praises on my piece here, I have to admit, I had to look up "onomatopoeia' BUT I love learning new words so thank you for that also! ::grin:: ~Trudy~

    This is a real honor for you to say so, I hope you enjoy it as much as I do, the cinnamon makes all the difference in the world, I just a teaspoon in the grounds when brewing.
