One Deep Breath- "Coffee Haiku"


Checking email
caffeine boots up my hard drive

ready to begin



Awake in a fog
following the aroma
hot liquid lingers

These are great! I love, "caffeine boots up my hard drive"- absolutely brilliant. And, "following the aroma" this is exactly what I do. Wonderful job.

The first one is so funny. The problem for me is coffee boots up my hard drive a bit too much! The second haiku is lovely.

Karen said...

I love haiku! I once wrote a haiku series on my terrible prom experience. Yours in marvelous!

tinker said...

I'm not even much of a coffee drinker (I'm more of a tea-drinker), but I could almost smell the coffee reading your haikus! That first one is so clever, and the second one is lovely and cozy. Great job, Tammy!

Sandy said...

The first one sounds a lot like me! I have noticed this week that everyone feels very strongly about their coffee or tea.

I finally finally finally answered your (and a few others) question on my blog today.

jayne said...

Oh...I like these. I shared them with my assistant, we're both on autopilot in the mornings until the coffee makes its way into our bloodstream.

Amber said...

I loved these! cool. And pictures of your house always look so nice...Just like a home I would love.

:)

Becca said...

Yep, that's me in the am - booting up along with the computer and my cuppa joe!

Loved those haiku...

bella said...

LOL. I loved these haiku. I am so much the same in the a.m. Checking emails while the coffe brews.. beginning my day.

*Oh yes, you knew I had a perfect pic for the SPC. I only used it because my grand master plan for a great picture fell apart. I'll have a great one for next week.

Savoring my morning cup of coffee and finding your “Coffee Haiku” was a double shot. Thanks.

"Boots up my hard drive".

Hi Tammy, I bet you pushed a lot of laughter buttons with people identifying with this image. I sure did. Hugs, Annie
