A Cup of Hot Coffee

I'm a caregiver and an artist. I received high honors in creative writing, fine arts, and sculpture at Montserrat College of Art.

A Cup of Hot Coffee

A hot cup of coffee to start off my day

A hot cup of coffee and I’m on my way

Each day the aroma it fills the air

I put on my clothes and flash down the stairs

A hot cup of coffee waits for me, black as oil and it looks like tea

A hot cup of coffee its like a taste of heaven

Don’t drink it at night or you’ll be up past eleven

A hot cup of coffee some call it a Joe

It travels the throat and warms the soul

A hot cup of coffee is all i'll ever need

Its even better than beer, cigarettes, or weed

A hot cup of coffee and off I go, moving real fast no time to be slow

A hot cup of coffee it fell in my lap

A hot cup of coffee “God!”, I hate that crap!

Lora, I loved reading your comment, awesome! I do something kinda similar. I will get up to make a cup of coffee and add some white chocolate into it. Then I will either sketch a bit, watch The Andy Griffith Show, or I will play the "word game".

The word game is an audio game on the amazon alexia device. It allows me to play word puzzle games against people all over the world. I just tell my alexia device "alexia, play the word game." and it will find a real person to play with. Then you play a round of 5 questions. It asks the same question to both players. Whoever gets the most right wins and moves to the next round. If you make it into round 3 Amazon wants you to buy the game. It is well worth the money in my opinion. It was only .89 cents USA. When I bought it, Amazon gave me a 3.00 digital media credit. So ya, I made out on the deal. You can play the first two rounds for free anyhow. If you have Amazon Alexis device you should check it out. It's a lot of fun, to play while sipping on that hot cup of coffee.

I love coffee and tea! A very good poem, Jason. I certainly can relate to your passion for coffee. My favorite thing to do in the morning when I first get up is to have a cup of coffee with dark chocolate and do a couple of word puzzles. That is my big treat for the day.

Awe...I remember those days!

I no longer drink coffee, but i remember it well. I do often wonder though...now there are so many flavors to choose from...what it would taste like, Even cappuccino was before my time.

Nice work.

I don't function without that first cup of coffee and it looks as if I'm not the only one. Loved it.

Good one Jason. A hot cup of coffee is much better than beer, cigarettes or weed, to me as well. I so need my cup first thing in the morning. Luckily you got dressed before flashing down the stairs. Otherwise spilling it in your lap may have had dire consequences haha.
