In appreciation of my coffee mug

My contribution for the prompt at Applehouse Poetry Workshop. An appreciation for anordinary thing that we use everyday.

Appreciating the humble coffee mug

Today I want to say something wonderful

About my coffee mug

The first thing I want to see everyday

Steaming in the morning light

I hug its well-rounded contours

Close to my chest and sigh deeply

With pure pleasure

As warmth seeps into me

I take a deep deep breath

Inhale the aroma

Of hot filter coffee

Freshly brewed

The wide handle fits easily into my palm

Encircled by fingers and thumb

The soft pastel colour

Patterned with flowers

Are a welcome sight for sleepy eyes

Every morning
