‘Writers’ Companion’ (a Poem)

It’s been a while since I shared a poem on this blog, so I wanted to do that today. Writers’ Companion is inspired by coffee! I always do the stereotypical writerly thing of starting my mornings with a cup of coffee (it’s a meditative experience for me, in many ways). I found the lovely image on Nespresso’s website, because my own coffee pictures are never as pretty as that! 😂

Writers’ Companion

Night gives way
Slowly but surely
To the song of passing birds
The rumble of rush hour
Running feet on the path below.

I sit in silence
(desk at the ready,
pen in hand)
And take a moment
To enjoy
Steam
Aroma
Taste.

Froth breaks against my lips.
