I need you
your strong darkness
My salvation of the morning
My ease at night
So many tastes of you
to feed my addiction
Your warmth lingers,
slowly fills me and
I hold you close, to
inhale more deeply
of your scent
You are my
awakening
Opening my eyes
to refinements of
culture,
savoring your many
flavors at night
Yet always
I find I love you most
just before dawn
in your primitive,
dark, strong constitution,
never desecrated by
cream and sugar
in my cup

What a wonderful perspective to take, Caroline - I love the idea of desecration through cream and sugar.

It highlights to me how out of touch we seem to be with the world (ie - 'Colder'! - reading my mind again...?)
Marvellous work.

That sure describes it well! A morning without coffee is...well...not morning!
Great poem and choice of words too!

This was great Caroline--you had me thinking of a lover not a coffee lover.

 In the dew of little things,
the heart finds its morning
and is refreshed.

Denise...you got that right!   Thanks!

DA...some organic Costa Rican light...it was great *LOL*  (pouring you out a cup...have some!)

Martie~~Well I gotta take what I can get..ROFL  

Hoot, my friend...try this recipe...you'll be a convert for sure
Toffee Coffee
One cup of black coffee
Three tablespoons of caramel syrup
Two tablespoons half & half

Pour the caramel syrup into a tall mug, pour the hot coffee over it. Add the cream, stir well. Top with whipped cream and sprinkle with cinnamon/sugar or nutmeg (your choice!)
Kick back and enjoy it  
(This is also good with some amaretto thrown in!)

Caroline -

Here I sit,
coffee cup in hand.
The taste of my coffee
is really quite grand.

Maxwell House and I
have a covenent with Heaven,
if it's not served
WELL .....
(no, no ... not there !)
If Heaven doesn't
serve my blend ...
we'll have to see
that it's brought in.

I mellow mine
with cream so light,
it really is
a morning delight.

Thank you for
the rhyme
it was
'good to the very last drop'.
