Well, here we are to the big love day and my final Coffee Valentine. I hope these light-hearted messages of love have added to your celebration of Valentine’s Day and to your enjoyment of great coffee. 🙂
COFFEE VALENTINE # 7
Your love is like the world’s best coffee. I just can’t get enough of it, so I’m ordering refills for life.
Can you believe we are already smack-dab in the middle of February of this new year? And everyone knows what February means: Hearts, flowers, chocolates, and love songs — and coffee, right???? Yes? No?
I say, “Yes.!” Of course coffee is one of the great loves of my life, so naturally when celebrating love, I include coffee as my beverage of choice.
And I’ve just been thinking: We should have us some coffee valentines. So … true to my unique — or should we say “off- the-wall” — character, I’ve decided to post a few of the aforementioned sentiments during the next few days. Below, you will find Coffee Valentine # 1.
COFFEE VALENTINE # 1
Wow, you’ve made a huge splash in my life! Will you please be my Valentine?
I decided it’s time I wrote about coffee again, and I like to challenge myself to write about a common topic in an uncommon way. So I’ve decided to close out January with a 3-day challenge to myself to write a brand new coffee cinquain for the last 3 days of the month. And if any of my viewers would like to join the challenge, you are very welcome to do so. Just write your own coffee cinquain on your own site and hop over here and put the link to it in the Comment Window below. If you’re not familiar with cinquain, you can find an explanation on my poetry site at this link: Ahyoka/Cinquain.
So let’s get started with Day 1’s poem.
Is starting right:
My coffee’s black and hot,
My cup entwined in happy leaves.
It just wouldn’t be right if I didn’t celebrate the new year with a coffee post. And, then, since chocolate runs a very, very close second to coffee as my favorite treat, I figured I should include both. So I decided I’d stay in my limerick vein another day, and this is what I came up with.
Coffee makes everything better.
If I’m battling inclement weather,
Or I’m dealing with stress,
Or my love life’s a mess,
I grab coffee and chocolate together.
The aroma of both is so soothing —
All my distraught emotions quite smoothing.
As they alter my brain,
My good mood I regain,
And the whole world commences improving.
Hey — do you have coffee lovers on your Christmas list? Well, if so, you’ll want to check out the DAILY GRIND COFFEE LOVERS JOURNAL.
It’s a journal made especially for the coffee lovers around the world. Thirty-one full-color, delicious coffee photos, each with its own special caption. Every picture is accompanied by it’s own set of 3 lined journaling pages to record the reader’s personal responses to the photos or to coffee in general — or to serve as the catalyst for recording the deepest thoughts and intents of the heart about any subject under the sun. 93 lined pages in all.
It’s great fun and a lovely way to record ideas, wishes, memories — all the things that really matter — and that often come to mind when we’re sitting back enjoying a satisfying cup of coffee.

I had a few minutes this afternoon — mainly because I’m putting off getting started on my laundry and dishes — but nevertheless — I thought I’d use those minutes to join in Trent’s “Weekly Smile” fun.
I had a fairly troubling week, but I did smile at least once each day because I had decided to do a series of coffee posts last week. Now, anyone who visits my site very often knows how much I love coffee, and since I decided to challenge myself to post a brand new coffee poem every day for seven days — along with lovely photos of the beverage — I had something to smile about each day. And I did smile as I wrote each poem.
Frankly, I consider seven smiles in one week a very successful week. So let’s hear it for the happy beverage that sparked my grinner. Yay Coffee!!!
Well, here we are at day 7 of this series already. This poem will finish up our little coffee adventure. Hope you’ve enjoyed it as much as I have. And today I’ve chosen to use Cinquain — one of my favorite poetic forms — to render my coffee thoughts.
Coffee: Delightful drink. Beverage of choice world-wide. Stimulates yet comforts body And soul.
