He Brings Me Coffee


dreamy thoughts

are interrupted, his presence drawing near

repeated weight upon each step

closer now I hear

enter  our morning tradition

balancing a teetering cup with only his right hand

accompanied by ceramic chatter

and I know

I can face the morning

and the day

Such a simple action

to give in such a way

He knows just how I like it

I’ve seen him watching me

We have this handy gadget it’s small yet does the job

blend organic agave & cream

pour coffee on the top

The cream foams at the brim

topped with sugar and cinnamon


from a dead soldier salt shaker

This sequence is a$$ backwards, yet the feeling just the same.

If asked would I do it over, I’d shout  “I will” again.



Unlikely Pairings

New to me:  Ice Cream and Popcorn

There was a new parlor on the outskirts of town.

What the heck, I’m old enough to drive now. Grab my friend Sheila and we’re off.

ice cream parlor

Wow, I’d seen nothing like this parlor except in the movies.

Sitting at the parlor table with our cones, we were brought a bowl of

popcorn. I look at Sheila who tells me to “dip your cone in it, like this.”

I dipped and tasted:

It was Reese’s Pieces commercial only three times more!

Not just two smoothies, rather: smooth and bumpy; hot and cold; sweet and salty.

The marriage of munching the popcorn as it gave way to the chilling ice cream

meeting in the middle and churning to a savory blend of absolute delectable divine.

Life’s like that: Joy and Sorrow,  Ying-n- Yang


simple ice cream and popcorn

Off to the store now. Yum.
