dVerse Quadrille Monday 136 – Early Morning Transport

https://images.fineartamerica.com/images/artworkimages/mediumlarge/1/morning-coffee-khalid-saqr.jpg

Some quiet clockwork mornings
air crunches, birds still slumber;
cats furry donuts in fleece beds
when anachronistic stage is set;
triggers from percolator poems
transport with each sip, to when
lips lingered over lips together,
steam wisps and easy smiles
cozy-niched into our forever.

      Thanks, Dale. That’s what they look like in their fleece beds when they sleep.

    A perfect time for some Chet Baker (what a life he had). Your free verse is smooth, calming, fulfilling. This shows yet another side to you.

    Coffee can definitely percolate the mind, and the not-quite-awakeness state stirs it into reverie. Also I love that painting. (K)
