Coffee: A Poem

Updated on May 9, 2017

A mysterious dark liquid,

Warm and bitter,

Sweetened and made creamy,

The steam rises as anticipation builds,

When sipping energy from a favorite mug,

Inspiration appears suddenly in a caffeinated brain,

While sultry flavors entice me to drink again,

Steamy, luxurious, and heavenly,

I savor my coffee and feel alive.

      Here is my uninvited revision:

      From the depth of the deep sea,

      this wine-dark brine ocean,

      —warm, bitter, and sweet—rises

      the hoary breath

      of a gossamer goddess,

      whose wicked fragrance kicks

      my dead brain in gear,

      firing neurons

      of sudden stars

      Dr. Kim

      Interesting, I just drank my coffee! I put molasses in mine so it does not taste bitter.

      After seeing the photo and then reading the poem, I could smell, and taste, another cup. Voted up.

      This hub defiantly makes me want a hot cup of coffee. Coffee and poetry are two of my favorite things, and here they are together on this page. Voted up and enjoyed!
