Can Coffee Expand your Mind?

In poetry, Uncategorized on May 29, 2014 at 3:45 pm

 

Good Morning

Some days I have to remind myself to breathe and be thankful. That is easier sad then done when you feel like you live in complete and total chaos. I am not always successful and I imagine you are not as well. If you are, please let me know how that is done. I am however on occasion prone to rare moments of insight. When that happens I hold on to it like the holy grail. I write down so that when I forget I can come back and try remember and re apply. It is amazing what one good cup of coffee can do isn’t it? Yes, all of this from a cup of coffee! What moments put it all in perspective for you? How do all of you deal with the chaos of life?

I’d love to hear from you all so please leave me a comment. Grab yourself a cup of Joe and enjoy!

 GRATITUDE FOR SPRING

The house still and silent,clam and serene.

You, still in your slippers and robe alone with you thoughts.

The house fills with the smell of fresh brewed coffee.

The scent of flowers drifting trough your open kitchen window.

You can feel the mild chill of the early morning air and it feels good against your skin.

Your lights are still dim, no cell phone ringing, no children screaming.

There is only the faint sounds of nature and the singing robin perched on the wire outside.

You take a sip of your coffee enjoying the complexity of the flavors and the peace and tranquility in the stillness

You mind is at peace, no racing thoughts or to do list in sight.

There are no bosses or husbands to answer to, no barrage of people pulling in a hundred directions .

You are free from makeup and image,away from the judging eyes of society and from those looking desperately for you flaws.

These are the hours of the day when we are the most authentic versions of our self and as God intended.

These are the moments that while brief, provide a glimpse behind the veil.

This is the space where gratitude and simplicity live and if only for a brief shining moment we are filled with its light.

Engulfed in its warmth as if embraced by God we find the strength to start the day

We sally forth in to harsh reality’s, armed with grace, filled with light and surrounded by peace.

With silent gratitude for this spring day.

Ts
