Elixir of Day

Elixir of day
Whiffs of fresh dark roast coffee
Awaken with kiss


As many of you know, I have been on a bus tour with my mom to the North East USA.  In 13 days we traveled 4000 miles, through 17 states with 46 adventuresome souls. 

I have been away from home in TX since August 29th and returned this evening.  Tomorrow morning I am looking forward to my husband and my morning ritual of 20+ years.  He awakens me quietly, blowing whiffs of fresh cup of coffee then gives me a morning kiss.   🙂

    Young lady I am not sure which delights me more, your very sweet story or your delightful Haiku. And oh my gone from home since Aug. 29th? On a bus tour? You are downright brave! Congrats on those 20+ years.


  8. O yes! The first coffee of the day is indeed an elixir for body and spirit!

    PS: I forgot to add “what a nice way for you to begin your day.”


  10. phylor says:

    Is there any other way to start the day! The darker, the better, laced with coffee cream or whipped cream.

      It is a great way … I have finally learned to drink it black … unless, I am drinking my mom’s from the French Drip pot – fixed the way my grandmother fixed it (the pots are “heirlooms” handed down)!

    I can smell the coffee now ☺.
    And the tickle of the cats whiskers as she “kiss hugs” me. ☺.
    Thanks for the post…enjoyable.
