Erin is a writer and content creator from Georgia, United States. She loves coffee, books, and puppies.
A mysterious dark liquid,
Warm and bitter,
Sweetened and made creamy,
The steam rises as anticipation builds,
When sipping energy from a favorite mug,
Inspiration appears suddenly in a caffeinated brain,
While sultry flavors entice me to drink again,
Steamy, luxurious, and heavenly,
I savor my coffee and feel alive.

Here is my uninvited revision:
From the depth of the deep sea,
this wine-dark brine ocean,
—warm, bitter, and sweet—rises
the hoary breath
of a gossamer goddess,
whose wicked fragrance kicks
my dead brain in gear,
of sudden stars

Lovely poem and great photo.
The Examiner-1 on January 09, 2014:
Interesting, I just drank my coffee! I put molasses in mine so it does not taste bitter.
After seeing the photo and then reading the poem, I could smell, and taste, another cup. Voted up.

This hub defiantly makes me want a hot cup of coffee. Coffee and poetry are two of my favorite things, and here they are together on this page. Voted up and enjoyed!
