On white china background, in farmyard scene,
are roosters rendered, and sketched in between
leaves and flowers. This coffee mug has style.
Wide-handle hugs fingers, the bowl–caffeine.

This mug is a precious gift from dear friend.
Twice each day I fill with Pacific Blend.
As I sip coffee, lost in reverie,
I smile and think of her, my dear girlfriend.


About purplepeninportland

I am a freelance poet, born and bred in Brooklyn, New York. I live with my husband, John, and two charming rescue dogs–Marion Miller and Murphy. We spent eight lovely years in Portland, OR, but are now back in New York. My goal is to create and share poetry with others who write, or simply enjoy reading poetry. I hope to touch a nerve in you, and feel your sparks as well.
