One Shot Wednesday.....

.

.
LIQUID PORTAL TO EACH AND EVERY DAY.....
You can drink it Icy or Hot, Creamy or Black.
Drink it all day? You can't 'Hit the Sack'!
It's Picked, then Dried, it's Ground, then Roasted.
It's then Brewed and Drank..With things that are Toasted!
Drink it occassionally, or drink it Daily.
Drink it with Kaluah, or try it with Bailey's.
It's morning Inspiration...An insomniacs Sensation!
It's the very 'Best Part of Waking-Up'...
And it's ALWAYS ...'Good to the Last Drop'!!

.
.

Hot Simmering Mud.
Percolated Perfection...
I'll have TWO creams please!

.

Got Poetry? Prose? Short Stories?
Is it Wednesday?.....Go Here!

An homage to a beverage that I absolutely cannot live without, everyday, many times a day... I don't sleep much. lol Nice poetry, G!

I recognize another addict when I see one!

lime said...

you forgot the kind that passes thru the g.i. tract of a palm civet.

i don't drink any of it but i admit it smells great when it's brewing.

Serena said...

I'm just finishing a cup now. And I'm such a hard-core caffeine addict that it won't even keep me awake.:)

SY said...

Half coffee half bourbon for a real eye opener.

hedgewitch said...

I can't imagine why you're here drinking coffee when you should be out prancing around a stone circle under a full moon...but of the two, I have to say I'd rather be sluggin down the joe too. And you mentioned my favorite creamer--Bailey's.

Mama Zen said...

And, some of us take it through in IV drip!

clean and crazy said...

Monkey Man said...

Jannie Funster said...

Add 1.5 sugars to those 2 creams and I'm in coffee morning heaven!

And it grows best in the mountains, right?

And since I'm on your blog (but only by Googling you) 'cause your link in my commentss is STILL not correct, I'll tell you that a package was sent Media Mail to Flint, MI today from Austin, TX.

To whom, from whom? I'm not saying. Only the posties will say for sure.

TALON said...

And now I'm going to have some Bailey's with after dinner coffee tonight. :)

Thanks for the reminder of how delicious the java is, Galen!

LauraX said...

I was so addicted to the stuff for so many years...and now I can take it or leave it...strange how that could just magically shift.

PattiKen said...

Ode to java. I love it (both the java and the ode). ;-)

River said...

LoL! My morning ritual. I wonder how many writers on here have to have a cup every morning to start kick their brains.

lizziviggi said...

This is so much fun! Ahhh... it's the only reason I get up in the morning.

Steve Isaak said...

Fun, smile-causing work.
