morning coffee will make the lousy weather a bit more tolerable
wake up in the morning
enjoying the first cup of
open the laptop
to read and view
the latest news
lo and behold
come to realize
nothing has changed
everything is the same
not really surprised
but…you never know
a morning in the future
may stun the mind
saying that it is to
good to be true
that there is
you never know
a mug of coffee
a book to read
need more coffee
and put away
time for a
time is right
for the aroma
of fresh brewed
coffee is calling
think i’ll sit
and wait out
and enjoy the
comforts of the a/c
and slake my
thirst with water
with a cup
or two of caffeine
so…. that’s what
sit down…take a load off your feet, and have a cup of coffee…we can spend some quality time having a gab fest…most any subject works for me…we can keep it light, or on the heavy side…in between is okay too…so…what ever floats your boat…
its sunday afternoon… sitting on the couch, tv is on… laptop across my thighs… going through emails… blog posts… doing digital crosswords… its a good day for it… as the rain is streaking at slanting angle… brewed some french roast coffee… so it will help me to function properly without getting sleepy eyed…

brewed coffee makes a great statement vs instant, it just doesn’t make the cut
the feeling when you spill coffee on your clothes, carpet or furniture. it’s a bitch to clean up…
Without much sleep, I am sitting here, cup of coffee beside me, reading blog posts, and trying to figure out, what the hell am I doing up, when I should have gone back to bed. Of course there’s the nap routine, then there’s countless cups of strong, black coffee. Then there’s just go with the flow, and see what comes of it.
life is good
Morning thought: coffee, self medicating stimulant.
Coffee: it livens up the mood.
Every morning, at 3:00 a.m., you will find an elderly gentleman, sitting in his favorite booth, having a cup of coffee. He has been patronizing this certain coffee shop, since he retired many years ago from the book editing job, that he had for over 35 years.
He usually is the only one there, and he has gotten use to the solitude he enjoys. It doesn’t matter what the weather is like. It can be cold, hot and humid, raining or snowing, it will not stop him from walking the two blocks from where he lives in a high rise downtown apartment.
When he’s finished his coffee, he will take one to go, and then stop at the kiosk, and by the morning newspaper. Later in the day, he will take a nap, recharge his batteries, and then he will go about whatever he feels like doing.
“…Seattle has unleashed this weird phenomenon on the world called the coffee shop. And the coffee shop, thanks to Starbucks, is the place where socially isolated, lonely, needy people gather together to ignore one another.”
~ Mark Driscoll
“Lightnin’ Hopkins was something of a fixture on the Houston coffee house scene so we were witness to eccentric blues brilliance close up. Then, believe it or not, along came the wave of the English cats like John Mayall, Eric Clapton and the Stones embracing the great American art form – the blues.”
~ Billy Gibbons
“Sometimes life is merely a matter of coffee and whatever intimacy a cup of coffee affords.”
~ Richard Brautigan
No coffee. No reason staying awake.
Mug of hot coffee. All good.
When the coffee is good, then I’m good to go.
With all that is going on in the world, my coffee imbibing has started to increase. Is it a good or bad thing?
I believe humans get a lot done, not because we’re smart, but because we have thumbs so we can make coffee.

The morning cup of coffee has an exhilaration about it which the cheering influence of the afternoon or evening cup of tea cannot be expected to reproduce.

“Is it possible to get a cup of coffee-flavored coffee anymore in this country? What happened with coffee? Did I miss a meeting? They have every other flavor but coffee-flavored coffee. They have mochaccino, frappaccino, cappuccino, Al Pacino…Coffee doesn’t need a menu, it needs a cup.”
~ Denis Leary

All ye caffeine junkies, drink up, and get wired.
I’ll read my books and I’ll drink coffee and I’ll listen to music, and I’ll bolt the door. ~ J. D. Salinger
too much coffee
drinking it too fast
producing a caffeine rush
and wiring up my brain
sitting at the table
staring into space
Steaming hot cup of coffee. Morning kicker.
Widespread caffeine use explains a lot about the twentieth century.
~Greg Egan, “Distress”
I want to hear the simmer
Of the old coffee pot;
I want to hear it hummin’
When it’d gettin’ good and hot;
I want to see the vapor rise,
Like incense in the room,
And float about a-fillin’
Every corner with perfume.
~John W. Fellows, “The Old Coffee Pot,”
in The People’s Home Journal, July 1903
“I just want a hot cup of coffee,black,and I don’t want to hear about your troubles.”
– Charles Bukowski
What goes best with a cup of coffee? Another cup. ~Henry Rollins
Willie and Wilma are at the kitchen table, drinking day-old brewed coffee, and both are wondering why it tastes like shit.
In my world there would be as many public libraries as there are Starbucks. ~Henry Rollins
If you don’t drink coffee, I am suspicious of your character and will not invite you to my Italian lake home. -George Clooney
Sam was in his glory, as the woman behind the counter, gave him a bag of day old muffins and doughnuts. She also filled his thermos with fresh brewed coffee.
Sam is homeless, and has no job. He forages in the dumpsters for returnable cans and bottles, which keeps him busy.
Now he is thankful for people like the woman that works at the local bakery. Sam sees the best the best in people, and that’s a good thing.
Over second and third cups flow matters of high finance, high state, common gossip and low comedy. [Coffee] is a social binder, a warmer of tongues, a soberer of minds, a stimulant of wit, a foiler of sleep if you want it so. From roadside mugs to the classic demi-tasse, it is the perfect democrat. ~Author Unknown
The reporter for the local newspaper, fueled with excessive amounts of caffeine, is typing away like a mad man. His editor loves his work, even though he his in his own world, no one dares to tell him to slow down. The reason is, that a colleague told him to take a break, and that turned into a big mistake. The madman told him to shut the fuck up, and to mind his own fucking business. Needless to say, that was the one and only time that anyone would have the balls to say anything to him, about his habit.
On almost any given night, the insomniacs congregate at the mid-town diner, with cups of coffee to discuss the different reasons, of the whys they cannot sleep.

Standing on the sidewalk
he said hello to a woman
who he never saw before.
She replied with a smile
and a hello.
He asked if she would
like to go have a coffee.
Her answer was a sincere yes.
They went to the nearest
cafe, sat at the small
table by the window
and enjoyed their coffees.
They told each other their
likes and dislikes, and
other things they like
to do and see.
From that moment on,
there was a lasting
bonding of friendship
that would last for
quite some time.

“I put instant coffee in a microwave oven and almost went back in time.”

Happiness is the morning’s first cup of coffee.
-Don @ A Pondering Mind
Sitting alone at an outdoor
cafe, enjoy his morning cup
of coffee. He puts down his
phone and decides to do the
crossword. He thought he
brought his medium point,
black ink pen, but he realized
that he hates using a pencil.
In the meantime, he will just
sit back and relax, and enjoy
the city life, and observe the
people from all walks of life.
Some going to their places of
employment, some doing errands,
the rest just passing the time
He knows that life as he knows
it, could not get any better
than this. Come tomorrow, he
will return, and will make sure
he brings his pen.
I love this quote.
He: It’s been a long day.
She: Why do you say that?
He: Well, I was busy.
She: Busy? Really?
He: Yes, busy.
She: Sitting on your ass all day, signifies that
you was busy?
He: While I was as you say, “sitting on my ass,”
I was doing stuff, like doing crosswords, reading,
blogging, and above all, taking coffee breaks.
She: Coffee breaks? Your drinking coffee all damn
day! And you call it coffee breaks. You’ve got some
balls saying that.
He: Since I’m retired, I still call them coffee breaks.
She: Your a real piece of work. Being retired has really
He: How have I changed?
She: You hardly ever go out, I have to beg you to do
several things like take out the trash, vacuum, and a couple
of easy tasks to do.
He: You knew I’m retired, so I thought I would take it easy,
live the life of Riley.
She: Wow! You’ve got it all figured out.
He: Yes I do, and that’s not going to change.
She: We’ll see about that.
