It’s pretty simple this week. I choose to share a poem.
Because I’ve never met an eggnog latte I didn’t like.
You come a teasin’ every November first
in pretty red cups, taste buds ready to burst
But you know my rule, hard deadlines a must
no holiday drinks til turkey bones turn dust.
With each pass by coffee shops, a favorite of places,
your scent escapes wafting right in our faces.
The vanilla beans mixing with nutmeg and spice
taunting, ‘You know just one sip might be nice’.
You beckon me bashfully right in the door
breaking rules, pushing boundaries just a little bit more.
“One eggnog latte” this woman requests
ignoring her scruples and feeling distressed.
The coffee comes quickly, in that beautiful cup.
One sip. Sigh. Two. Now drink it all up.
You may be bad for me, BUT you fill me with cheer.
How many magic concoctions will be consumed this year?
