Haiku - coffee

The prompt at One Deep Breath this week is to write haiku about tea and coffee. Crafty Green Poet is a tea drinker but my Alter Ego sometimes likes a coffee and this haiku explains both why I like to, and why I don't very often:

mug of hot coffee
brings poetic inspiration
keeps me up all night.

I identify with this, or rather, with coffee's side effects outweighing everything else. I think I drink a cup every six months or so.

I think you speak for many of us in this clever haiku :-)
I too like both...and in the cooler weather always have a cup of tea before bedtime...without the "inspiring" effects that coffee would bring.

ah yes, coffee is a morning pleasure for me. Anytime I've strayed from this I've been up all night thinking about how good the coffee tasted.

Coffee is my lifeline day/night.
Hot. Cold. Always there.
Sleep doesn't suffer.
Thank God.

Thanks for your comments - oh AnnieElf I wish i could drink coffee and still be able to sleep. My partner seems to be able to drink endless amounts of coffee and sleep soundly..... Mind you I have found a very nice organic fair traded filter coffee - that works!
