she sits in the quiet of the night
somewhere the dogs bark
she stirs the coffee in the cup
and along with it seasons pass
dissolving crystals, lucid thoughts
a symphony in silence
all stirred with a spoon and half
in the mornings she looks up the dregs
they all speak of a better tomorrow
and then the nightingale calls

This is a gorgeous piece of writing and a fantastic picture to accompany.
awww….thank you so much ❤❤❤
That is a lovely cup of coffee. 🙂
😊😊you don’t like the piece of pie??
I didn’t notice it was there. I was focused on the coffee. 🙂
Hahahaha 😀😀😀😀I can’t stop laughing …I must be forgiven 😀
🙂 My coffee this morning didn’t look anything like yours.
Might I suggest a wee bit of photoshop and a dash of spirited sugar cubes?? 😄
I prefer to believe that there was a bit of magic, and kismet involved and not photoshop. Maybe just a tiny bit of sugar, too. 🙂
Awwww….I’d love coffee like that too ❤❤
I absolutely love this. ❤
Awwww…I sends you a big hug 🍃🍃🌸🍃🌸🍃🌸🍃🌸🍃

Sorry – I just gotta ask – coffee not tea?? But I agree with weight2lose – looks a perfect cuppa. 🙂 You have such a gift; to say so much in two short verses! Thank you 🙂

It’s your face in the coffee? I want to eat the sweet treat now!

The coffee looks delicious; the poem is bittersweet. Just lovely.

That coffee has your face in it. Nice. Would like to learn that technique.

A coffee for a technique, no problem. Will do with pleasure 🙂

Your writing energizes the mind more than coffee ever could. 😉
ummm…you didn’t find this particular cup of coffee strong enough??😀😀
Just saying, your writing is like coffee for the mind.
To be clear, it was a compliment. I loved it haha 🙂
That was so wonderfully worded Kismet.. 🙂
That makes me so happy 😊😊❤❤
Words well crafted and images created on the coffee is wonderfully refreshing…I have always experienced this twin power of words and pictures….loved it!!!
thank you so much…
OK, wonderful poem, great picture as usual. But enquiring minds have to know…did someone actually create that picture in foam, or was it out in post-processing. Either answer boggles my mind!
psssstt…that’s a secret and it all has to do with a darkroom 🙂
Lovely words and clever image!
😻😻😻awwww…thank you so much ❤❤❤
