In Paradise

In Paradise


Before Coffee

New dawn, the sun rises
Bright light hits the shades
Penetrating the senses
Disturbing peaceful breathing
Waking up from a dream

Sleepy eyes, unwilling to give in
Moody feeling, first encounter
with another new day

Daily rituals and routines,
Imperative for a serene morning.
A soft voice utters the words
“Good morning, my darling”

Dozing in a time lapse between states,
Sensing a presence,
A need to chatter,
“Please don’t”, the look on her face says enough,
Grumpy state of mind

Not before my first coffee…

After Coffee

New dawn, the sun has risen
The smell of crushed roasted beans,
Sprinkled with hot water
Penetrate the nostrils
Wanting the taste of a perfect brew

Grumpy eyes, lighten up
Moody feelings, ebbing away
The first sip on this new day

Browsing through the news
The old fashioned way,
Taking it in,
The hot cup in her hands
Your beauty, the taste of your lips

After first coffee,
Ready for another day…

In paradise.
