Morning Ritual

A delicate tea cup embellished with bluebirds holds the morning coffee, freshly brewed. A scant of organic farm fresh cream is carefully poured from a glass pint. The tiny ceramic spoon decorated with a cat face dips into the coffee and gently stirs, blending until the color of dark caramel. The first sip is savored, bitter and sweet, earthy and rich. A hint of fruit and chocolate.
