In the early light of morning sun
gathered 'round the table of my heart,
friends who share not only a cup of coffee
but true friendship.  Some like it with sweet,
sweet thoughts, some with words so very strong
some mellow it with thoughts that are the cream
that always rises to the top.  No matter how it's
flavored, it is blended with the friendship that
makes it go down so easy.
Let's have another cup of

I'm drinking my morning coffee at your place today, Marge.  Couldn't be in better company.  (By the way, are you sure we're not drinking from mushrooms?)

Would love to talk over a cup of coffee

Great poem, Marge, and clever presentation. For about the past month or so this has been my favorite early morning coffee spot (sometimes "too" early!) and the thought of us all sitting down "together" in our respective homes, watching the sun and sky  open up a brand new day for each of us, sipping rich, steaming hot coffee from our favorite mushrooms....ahhhh....
(so sorry, but Ted's mushroom comment nearly made me strangle in mid~sip!!)

Love and shared peace to all this morning...

Dear LadyClaire

Watch it, Toe... *G* I was all excited to have coffee ready so I wouldn't have to wait on this slow-brewing pot... but I might accidentally spill this whole mugful. LOL.

Enjoyed the gathering, Marge!! *S*

Hey, I don't drink coffee, but I'll come over just for the good company  

 I can live with the idea
That we are merely actors
Playing a part
But I do wish
Whoever is writing my script
Would learn to use
A few more Happy Endings

Black for me, no foo foo, and I sure would enjoy a friendship cup.  I know you have room in your heart, but do you have room in your kitchen?

Well thank you for the invite
I hop right an over for coffee and a bite

Ahhh, good coffee, good friends what could be better?! Wonderful poem! The idea of coffe and conversation with adults instead of Oatmeal with the kids  sounds like a nice change. ( not that I don't enjoy my mornings with my kids .....but you can only do that for so long without missing adults!   )- SEA

Glad to have you at the table.
