My Coffee, My Book & Me


A misty, rainy morning and
It's back to bed for me.
My coffee drips invitingly.
My current book lies dog-eared
At stopping place,
From last personal quality time.
What else can I do
But plump my pillows
And climb in?
You would too.
With hot libation,
and mental relaxation,
peace is mine.

Poet's Notes about The Poem

Nothing like a rainy day and a steamy mug of rich, fragrant java, and not having to go anywhere :) The smell of rain. The smell of coffee. The joy of happiness.

    A good piece of poetry, of peace and happiness!
    'My current book lies dog-eared
    At stopping place,

    A nice, practical description all book worms are familiar with.
    'What else can I do
    But plump my pillows
    And climb in? '
    My pillow is inviting me too! Good night. (Report) Reply

Poem of the Day

poet Christina Georgina Rossetti

Where sunless rivers weep
Their waves into the deep,
She sleeps a charmed sleep:
Awake her not.
Led by a single star,
She came from very far
