java, java

Golden-cupped wonder
perched on a coaster
on the counter
sits and waits patiently
for the embrace,
lift, sip, swallow,
and return to coaster,
again and again until
empty meets fulfilling full.

On mornings like this,
satisfying Saturdays,
there is little rush
with embracing,
lifting, sipping, swallowing,
and returning to coaster as
as Saturday has no agenda-ized
leash-like pull arranging
time’s constant call.

Embrace this cup,
lift, sip, swallow, return.
Ahhhhhhhhhhhhh . .  .
Today’s morning coffee is
special java indeed

java! java java

bo-ba-va, bo-na-na fanna

fo-fa-va. fee fi mo-ma-va, java

  2. Hi Jan,

    The coffee is a blessing on this rainy day.
    As for the poem, nothing goes better with
    morning java than a Jan poem. You bring
    the warmth of that coffee into this room…
    Thank you!!

    Salainte,

  3. Hello Sarah,
    Our rain arrives later on tonight. While watching our local station, I see/hear that weather predictions for tomorrow are dreary/rainy conditions throughout the whole day. Warmth in a mug comforts in times like these as a light chill of autumn fills the air. Hot chocolate? Coffee? Hot tea? I’ll take one of those.

  4. Saturday has no agenda-ized
    leash-like pull arranging
    time’s constant call. Jan love these words. It is blissful to have a day when no one is demanding your time. I am actually having one of those Saturdays, today. Second cup of java.

  5. Jan, “until empty meets fullfilling full”. I like those words. Whether it’s coffee, chocolate, or turmeric/cinnamon almond milk, the slow deliberate sipping brings its own peaceful moment. Thanks for the full cup of words that entice us to “Embrace this cup,
    lift, sip, swallow, return. Ahhhhhhhhhhhhh . . .”
