A Cup of Sanity

© Margaret Bednar ~  i & I ~  2012


One
Sip of
Velvety
Cappuccino
Provides a moment
Of peaceful reflection
And the opportunity
To refuel my soul, a respite
From hectic schedules and demanding
Voices…serenity topped with frothed milk.


~~~~~ This poem was inspired by a photo prompt from Imaginary Garden with Real Toads featuring the photography of Margaret Bednar.

Sometimes that is all it takes! This is the perfect form for the image too.

This was a fun evening out with my children. My son would have probably preferred a beer... but he is not of age yet :) Thank you for this poem. Drinking my morning (or afternoon) cup of coffee IS poetry to my soul :)

a little indulgence can bring such relief to one's day.

i enjoyed this! {i've become addicted to iced coffee with milk this summer.}
