the scent that gathers
in the kitchen air

the feel of cream
across my lips

the bittersweet taste
of mocha on my tongue

I could drink
a cup of you

It must be summer. Between "Like That" and this poem... I don't know, is it getting hot in here?

this reminds me of one of my favorite Joni Mitchell songs with the refrain: "you are in my blood like holy wine. you're so bitter, but you're sweet. oh, i could drink a case of you, and still i'd be on my feet, i would still be on my feet."

thanks for the reminder and the accompaniment as i sip my first morning cup of cafe au lait!

Snowsparkle, I did a doubletake while reading my own poem immediately after writing it because that very song came to mind... and I wondered for a moment if I'd written down her words! I had to look up the lyrics to get them straight. Savor your morning cup, my friend!

ditto snowsparkle about Joni, my favourite songstress and poetess and my favourite song of hers and, of her songs, my favourite line!
'I am in your blood like holy wine' - she is in yours (clearly) and mine and we are in hers and...well, the rest is a bit corny so i won't say it because it has all been said before, (and can never be said enough) but i'm sure you know what i mean by eternal truths.

This is so soulful. I really love it. "I could drink a cup of you" is genius. I think it says it all. Thanks so very much for this!
