Cream

My coffee pot
is a burning bush;
when I wake up,
I fill my cup
with a Red Sea rush
of sacramental caffeine.

Then, I part it with cream.

Amen.

For the kick-off of a Poem A Day in April at Real Toads.

Shot of hi-octane caffeine is a good start to the long haul.

You make me laugh and nod here...yes, coffee is indeed a sacred ritual in the morning.

Thank you for the challenge!

Nice parting, M.Zee, for the cream lovers. I like to taste the coffee. So, mine is black, brought to me by Mrs. Jim if I'm not up by 8:00 AM.
