Enable: Five Minute Friday

It’s so nice to start my Friday off with a link-up with the Five Minute Friday community. This is an encouraging collection of bloggers who share a common prompt on Fridays and spend five minutes free writing on the topic–no editing. I’ve met some great writers in this group. I highly recommend you check it out if you are not already familiar.

Now, on to the prompt…

Enable-give (someone or something) the authority or means to do something. (Oxford English Dictionary)

Ode to Coffee πŸ™‚

I wake to the sound of a chirping alarm,

To cover my head and stay where it’s warm.

The struggle to rise is a daily ordeal.

I fight with my mind: I can’t think; I can’t feel.

To my feet I must get,

There is work to be done;

Life to be lived;

Great things to be won.

But what is the difference between groggy and chipper?

It’s a hot pot of coffee,

To which,

I’m the sipper.

Oh, Coffee, you wake me with such a delight.

If I have you with me I can win any fight.

I can conquer the world with you by my side.

Oh, simple black coffee, you are saving my life.

You enable my body to wake up and go,

To accomplish big things and to learn and to grow.

Woe to the day when I cannot have you.

For that day my bed will just have to do.

  1. Delightful!

    Have you had Jamaican Blue Mountain?

    Sleepy-kissed by tropic sun
    to grow so smooth and rich;
    one sip, and you will be undone
    and thus will have to switch
    to that lovely island brew
    that calls langour to mind,
    but energizes you to do
    all you seek and find
    with a velvet caffeine kick
    that lacks unseemly haste,
    and will never make you sick
    with foul aftertaste.
    On internet it can be found
    at only sixty bucks a pound.
