Cuppa Poem 001

To My Cuppa

Here we sit by a fire
The dynamic duo: Coffee and me
Dinosaurs of the old cliché,

“I was sitting in a coffee house
when this poem came to me.:
But that’s how it is.

Hands warmed by
ceramic cup, aromas of
roasted beans, baked goodies,

and the occasional
stinky college student
combine to create aMuse-ment

There is nothing so sweet
as a bite to eat and a sip of
my dearest co-conspirator

Food and Writing, Writing and Food. Yeah, that’s the call from Kim Nelson at Poets United. It inspired both the pictamy® and the poem.

You know who you are, ha ha.

While the coffee is first with me, always, there’s a nosh… Right, Buddah? Also in the margins at my poetic lilypad, Imaginary Garden With Real Toads. Peace, Amy
