Coffee in Heaven

Paris: Balcony with a view

You'll be greeted
by a nice cup of coffee
when you get to heaven
and strains of angelic harmony.

But wouldn't you be devastated
if they only serve decaffeinated
while from the percolators of hell

your soul was assaulted
by Satan's fresh espresso smell?

coffee is a favourite subject for photographers, good to see some poet interested too.
clouds in my coffee ? You are a good brain rattler for me Claudia. was that a carly simon song ? Most of your posts trigger never ending chain of thoughts. one thing leads to another.

got it. you're so vain. thats the song with clouds in my coffee.

An espresso with a view over the Eiffel Tower! ... and no rain! :-)

I'm of a ratio of about five a day. You?
