Poet's Notes
(Show)

I do, in fact, sit on my terrace early every morning, weather permitting, and have my morning coffee and use this time and solitude to think. Usually my mind is clear from the previous day's clutter and clatter so I take advantage of the situation and think of a multiplicity of things. Perception is so amazingly clear when the false dawn faintly appears in the eastern sky.

A Cup of Coffee Most Enjoyed

Every day my first cup of coffee is most enjoyed
sitting alone in a cushioned chair on my lanai
when all the thoughts and ideas with which I toyed
seemed like logical solutions to world crises, then I
wondered why no one really gave a fig.
