Coffee Time

 Sam at the Poet’s Pub is asking us to write a list poem using Googlisms. As I was reading this prompt, Jock brought in my coffee, the rest is history. I had to do a lot of pruning.

I thought this was so daft that I wasn’t going to post it, then I thought what the heck, so here it is.

    Sometimes poetry has to be daft! I once wrote a sonnet based on Baskin-Robbins’ flavours of ice cream, and thought it was not worthy, but since I posted it, it’s ended up being my most-commented poems. This one is perfectly in that set of poems to enjoy along with the best of Mr. Lear!

    I am a fan of coffee, and especially coffee time! Even on a hot day, still drink it hot! People laugh sometimes, but I don’t care, please pour me another cup of that delicious brew.

    COFFEE! As soon as I saw the word, my brain relaxed. That’s a fun word to play with. i think I shall have an early second cup.

    🙂 This is neat, Viv. I’ve done that with my name, Jim, way back before the word, Googlism, was invented. I had to take the top 20 in two posts.

    I just finished my own coffee and am about to head off to bed. Mrs. Jim was finishing her e-book and now is getting a new one from our library. I posted and read MSN news clips while waiting for her. We had a little snack with coffee. It’s just to turn to 3:00 AM now.


  5. Coffee time is my whole working day… Sacrosanct is the best word to describe it, I think! And now, I want a coffee… But I have been awake for 32 minutes, so I’m long overdue… 🙂


  6. Coffee time is always… here in Sweden we drink more coffee than anywhere else except Finland

    Googlisms can be quite gigglisms!

    Are my comments going into your spam folder by any chance? They don’t seem to appear after I post them.


  9. Margaret says:

    Very cute. Coffee is… in the morning? Everything 🙂


  10. It’s a found poem – what’s not to like?

    When working at Newcastle University – 10.30 coffee time was a staff room ritual. So much was learnt in that half hour of chat and I loved the kit kats! Sally


  12. Wonderful! Now I wish I was drinking coffee instead of tea right now. 🙂 Great job with weaving and ordering these lines.


  13. Laurie Kolp says:

    I’d love to have coffee with you, Viv.


  14. I ♥ the heck outta coffee. Truly. 🙂

    ELEVENSES is certainly sacrosanct.
    Time for a smackerel and a sit-down with caffeine.
    BTW, I have just discovered the cold-fusion method, [ brewing coffee totally without any form of heat, so that there is no bitterness at all]. Tastes fabulous.


  16. Sherry Marr says:

    This prompt is ALL ABOUT daft. I LOVE it. Especially the corporate togetherness line.


  17. markwindham says:

    coffee time is anytime. While I do agree, it is not so often as before, and I will swerve for tea, but not the horrid flavored stuff, just some PG please. might be about that time now…


  18. brian miller says:
