But First Coffee

decorative

I took up the challenge this year to make a blog post every day. At first, it sounded like an easy task, but I soon discovered it more challenging than I ever imagined. For part of the year-long adventure, I explored different styles of poetry. I decided to revisit many of these styles in November. NaNoWriMo takes up most of my time during this month. Plus, the weather turns cold, making it hard to go on an adventure unless Rooster and I decide to visit our baby chick in New York City.  I need to get back to writing a fifty-thousand-word book in 30 days But First Coffee.

But First Coffee

Busy morning has me in a rush
Ugly demeanor before my first cup
Truth be told, I’m a decaffeinated monster

Frankly, coffee is my drug of choice
Ingested with gusto before I start my day
Rhapsody of reinforcement flowing through the filter
Subline dark  liquid floating in my cup
Tactical tranquility to capture my tenacity


Coffee, sweat coffee, bitter to the taste
Obviously, I’m a very addicted
Frequent visitor to the pot on the counter
Furious to get my morning fix
Everything is better after my first cup
Everything glows with the possibility of greatness.

I am the author of Saving the Hen House. I didn't know when I started it would turn into a series. I love to ride motorcycles, the blues, my family, and going on adventures. This old hen rocks.
