This Morning’s Song

Coffee. Bold.
Fragrantly steaming — the weather’s turned cold.

Expresso doubled again and again.
I opened my day’s calendar — it appears never ending.

Patience is short.
Went to sleep hungry — I just want to abort.

But I’ve got my rhyme on
My mind is igniting – I’m rediscovering song.

Some say this word play is outdated and old
Only prose poetry is true art – I’ve been told.

But listen to the underlying tune
Feel the rhythm and the mood – You and I’ll be dancing soon.

Coffee. Bold. No longer cold.
Doubled again and again, the beats never ending
Patience is overrated. I’ll never be sated.
Rhyme on! Oh! My minds got it ALL going on.
This never gets old, no matter what I’m told.
Listen to this tune and we’ll be dancing soon.

Come-on! Come-on! Put your dancing shoes on.
Let’s dance, dance, dance to this morning’s song!

Be well,

  4. I’m all for rhyme. There’s so much good rhyming poetry to be read. And word play is an art in my opinion!
