I'm taking a break... a coffee break!

Coffee Camaraderie

Sitting alone at the patio table
sipping peace to the trill of birdsong
nothing beats that cup of fresh brewed coffee
steaming hot in the chilly morning air

Having coffee for one might be fun, but
sharing a pot for two is a joyful conspiracy
exchanging stories between sips of friendship
breaking  biscuits and news to be shared by two

So here's to coffee camaraderie
to bonding and conviviality
come take a coffee break with me!

I shall be away, taking a break in Kuching, Sarawak for a week, so I shall not be participating in my favourite memes for a while. In the meantime, for those who drop in, help yourselves to some tea or coffee in these rose-patterned cups, and have a haiku to go with your cuppa:

change the rhythm
dare to reinvent yourself
emerge from cocoon

  1. Thank you for the cuppa! And have a great break! :)

  2. I'm not much of a fan of coffee, but I think you could reform me with those beautiful cups! I love the idea of sharing a cup while enjoying the garden view. May you have a wonderful, restful time.

  3. I could smell the Aroma! I am a coffee lover too. Yes, you have to reinvent yourself from the mundane rhythm of life.

  4. Love the bit about re-inventing yourself...

    ...and the tea set!

  5. I've reinvented myself several times...and now it seems as though the time has come to do it again!

    Rhythms here and here

  6. Wow......pretty fancy stuff, ma'am! Having coffee in those would make a gal feel pretty darn special. So thank you.

    Enjoy your wanderings--we'll help ourselves!

  7. Please bring back some kuching after the break.

  8. Thanks for coffee Rosie, i want mine with cookies too, haha. Happy vacation.

  9. Have a good time at Kuching...

  10. What beautiful tea cups! I just love to sip my tea from dainty cups with thin rims.

  11. "Dare to reinvent..." - I love that line :) Nicely said!

  12. That's beautiful tea cups and pots!
    happy holiday!

  13. Rosie,
    Given the many illegals that pass by our shores aiming for Australia, you may be right. It could well refer to these 'migrating' boat people.



Drop me a line!
It is always a pleasure to read your comments. I shall certainly try my best to jet over to your blog and catch up with you there.
