Ode to Coffee

Wake up and take up today’s burdens.

Perk up and work up your drive.

Groggy, brain foggy, day starting.

Not yet ready to be alive.

Motivation in a mug,

A warm hug,

A shoulder shrug,

Black and rich and steaming

Pour a curl, a swirl of cream in.

Cup to lip, a sip, caffeine trip.

Slowly eyes open.

Here’s hoping adulting goes easy today.

But in this place, a moment of grace in a vessel of clay.

Sweet respite.

Time to stand up, reach your hand up, get on with the day.
