Resonance and Harmony!


I silently sip my morning coffee,
closing my eyes the world
melts into a textual realm
of direct experience
  I smell the aroma of the earth, feel the soothing flow of water, allow the power of fire to warm me, and taste the  nourishment of life, 
thus,  my morning goes from silence into the sweetest song.

  15. Sung by a true coffee lover. I never got into drinking it much - the nerves and headaches kicked in before I even got used to the bitter taste - but I've always loved the smell.

  17. Haha! Love the pics. Took a sec to notice, then of course it distracted me, so I have to do a re-read.
