A toast to the roast

For the excellence of its aroma
For the richness in its taste
For the mystery of its history
For the boost it brings in morning haste
For the flavour one must savour
For the insight it promotes
For the clouds atop its liquid surface
For the dreams such clouds denote
Hail Arabica, hail Robusta
Hallowed be this blessed brew
For the joyousness you bring
We admire and honour you

Day 16’s prompt for NaPoWriMo was to “write a poem that uses the form of a list to defamiliarise the mundane”. I guess you could say I love coffee a latte… I was just trying to espresso my feelings. Affogato that some people don’t like puns – but I don’t really give a frap! 😉
