Walnut Cake

Walnut Cake

Walnut Cake

is a cake made of Walnuts

and various other ingredients;

but not coffee –

otherwise it would be a Coffee and Walnut Cake

(or, less often, a Walnut and Coffee Cake).

However, what goes nicely

with a slice of Walnut Cake

is a cup of coffee.

Boxing Day 2018 #12 (11:00)

Elevenses!

More coffee

for me

before we

travel East

to our destination

And a nice coffee;

nothing instant

maybe a cafetière

if time allows

but as it’s probably the third of the day…

and then we can be on our way.

George Clooney

It would be rude

To call George Clooney

a lunatic.

But, some do.

It’s not true,

I assure you.

His manner is so…

from far too much Nespresso!

Instant Coffee Shortage!

Instant Coffee Shortage!

I grind my own beans

and it’s not the same;

it’s different –

and that is no bad thing.

The Coffee Pot


There is a knack

In pouring coffee

From a coffee pot;

Sadly, it is a knack

That ‘I’

Haven’t got.

Art House, Southampton -yay!

Art House, Southampton -yay!

Contemplating my cappuccino
In an orange cup
On a blue saucer
In front of a red menu
Upon a brown wooden table.
Colourful.

Maybe I should stop contemplating
And get on with imbibing the drink
That is, I think, what I bought it for.

Poets love their inspirations
Even if one of them is luke-warm coffee.

Ode to a Cup of Coffee (in this Coffee Nation)

Ode to a cup of coffee

Spoon-stir my loins with your heady brew
Feed my imagination a jot or two
Fire my senses with the feelings of life
Then I shall be buoyant for ever…
Or at least an hour or two.
Sugar me up with caffeination
And styrup my taste buds
With you at my inside
I shall filter the good fight
As my mug is my Grail.

Spoon-stir my loins with your heady brew
Feed my imagination a jot or two
Fire my senses with the feelings of life
Then I shall be buoyant for ever…
Or at least an hour or two.
Sugar me up with caffeination
And styrup my taste buds
With you at my inside
I shall filter the good fight

Ishall not fail
As my mug is my Grail.

PS The above is like a Dopio Esspresso (that’s my excuse for two ‘very’ similar stanzas G:)
