#Weekendcoffeeshare

Sat in a coffee house of Italian Style

Giving my feet a rest for a while

having traversed the floor of a great gallery

my feet need a rest – and I start to agree

 

I order a late lunch – between two bread rolls

and sit down at table to rest up my soles

and whilst I am waiting – I read a good story

one that is funny and not at all gory

 

And as I wait, the steam it just rises

as barista puts in a cup of surprises

toffee flavour bits in my cocoa of day

a flavour that’s tasty in its own special way

 

But here comes my late lunch – tomatoes and meat

with cheese and salami – a real special treat

and as I tuck in, I’ve enjoyed my day

Sandwich brightening the weather, despite all the grey.

 

Chocolate Dreams

Chocolate, Dreams, Drink, Food, Poetry

A poem from 2015….the first post of 2016

Happy new year, WordPressers!

The chocolate fell
at speed
into the vortex
of swirling
bubbling milk

Steam from
Frothy
Velvety Milk
rose delightfully
transporting
Orange Chocolate
scents
into the air

Rising like
bubbles
of Mississippi
Mud
Happy Hippopotamuses
Mused

Perfect end of the day
before hitting
Purple Pillows and
dreamspace

The Power of Touch

Life, People, Pleasures, Warm

<a href=”https://dailypost.wordpress.com/prompts/the-power-of-touch/”>The Power of Touch</a>

It’s a powerful little thing that digit of yours.

As it touches the things around you, its little tiny nerve endings are sending messages to your brain

The soup is hot , the ice cream is cold and so on

But then there’s so much more

The feel of the bark of a growing tree, rugged and rough but occasionally smoothed by moss clinging to it

The Soft feel of a warm woollen jumper on a winter’s morn, telling you this will keep you cosy in the wind

The icy feel of fresh water – travelling down a stream, as it cascades over your hands and through your fingers

The warm feel of a mug of warm soup or Hot Cocoa, a perfect way to conquer those winter blues.

And then there’s its power to communicate

A Wave, a Point, A gesture – and that’s even before we discuss the arts of writing or drawing – they are skills that develop through life, but can be mastered in simple ways through paper, pencils and paint (and perhaps, with help from mum and dad – a potato)

When five digits work together its known as The hand wave.  Used as you spot a loved one at the station – saying “Hello, its great to see you”

The Pat on the Back – The Shake of the Hand – all signals to say to a friend “Well Done”

And then there’s the Hug – a big way for a little person to say ” I Love You, Mum and Dad”

And all the while it hasn’t said a word.

Even though its said thousands.
