Morning Devotions at My Caffeine Temple

IMG_4545Stumble steps, avoiding pets

Paws and noses tripping threats.

Shuffle feet across the floor,

Cranium kissed in headline lore

Mornin’ you.

Love you, too.

Make my way to caffeine brew.

Grab my mug, pour the joe,

Cup is filling, way too slow.

While I wait my eyes alight,

Images splashed with morning light

Memories, precious history,

Ripened fruit from  family tree.

Countenances cede me joy

My precious girl and baby boy.

Each morn I gaze at photos here,

So memories never disappear.

Frozen, static always young.

A visual reveille that’s sung.

I sip, pause and stare awhile,

Embrace the day with grateful smile.

  1. Love the poem about the morning ritual waiting for coffee to fill your mug and looking at all those wonderful photos – “so memories will not disappear…” What a great way to start each day! Thanks, Paula!

  2. Sounds like we have a similar morning — except I run before my coffee! My favorite line is: Images splashed with morning light Morning light is the reason I love to get up early to run read or write. There is something so peaceful yet invigorating about the morning light. Love it!

  3. Such a great ode to your mornings! I could especially relate to the beginning and watching out for the “tripping threats.” Same here!! I am thankful for the timer on my coffee pot so my coffee is ready when I wake up.

  4. I don’t know what I like more the routine or the beautiful poem. I plan to visit again to reread and create a morning spot of my own. Thank you.

  5. Great images in this poem, Paula. I had to laugh because right above my coffee makes I have a collage that includes my husband and five kids with their spouses. Like you, I start eveyday with a vision of the people I love the most. It reminds me of what is really important in life.
