As the warmth envelopes me
From the tips of my fingers,
To my mouth
I get a comforting feeling.
This sets me up and energises me.
It’s like a meeting and catch-up with
An old friend.
An anticipated break,
A chance to sit down for 5 minutes.
As we sip our coffee
(de-caf for me his time),
I don’t want the heat from the cuppa or conversation to end.
Savouring every delicious mouthful,
The warmth lingers
And I enjoy the familiarity,
My safety net.
The net that I can turn to
Which encourages and
Makes me feel that all is well.
I can face anything now…
Thanks to my cuppa!
So where did this piece of writing come from? Well, I follow a blog by Sandra Danby in which she has a feature called ‘Writer’s Block’ This piece came from her blog on coffee. I love that this piece came from focussing on one of our 5 senses. I hope you like it…
Thanks for reading.
