Ever since I twirled my first Irish limerick off my tongue as a young lass, I’ve loved to write poems. Funny, sexy, heartwarming, you name it.
So on Great Poetry Reading Day, here’s HOT JAVA.
My ode to coffee.
And how awesome it is the morning after a great night with HIM. The man in your life.
And no, I don’t profess it to be great poetry. But I hope it will put a smile on your face.
Java is a girl’s best friend
When you don’t want that special night to end
“Stick around for a cup of Joe,” you say
After a night in bed that blew you away
Then watch his eyes glow with desire
When you put on the coffee and light his fire
Wearing a sexy black teddy, tight and see-through
You ask, “Eggs or cinnamon buns with your brew?”
“I’ll have the buns,” he says, eyeing yours with a smile
You shiver with glee. The coffee can wait for awhile
It’s back to bed with your man for round two
And to coffee you say, a big “Thank you!”
Guess what they used for coffee in 1862?
During the Civil War, it wasn’t easy to get supplies, as we see here in LOVE ME FOREVER when my time traveling heroine, Liberty Jordan, finds herself on a Virginia plantation–taking the place of a woman who happens to be her twin…and a Confederate spy:
Liberty finished her tea, wishing it were coffee, but there were major shortages of salt and coffee. She wasn’t fond of the parched okra seed that replaced coffee, and she had no desire to try the grits-and-rye blend used as a java substitute. The price of salt was high and she’d heard stories of Southern cooks brushing grains of salt off salted pork to reuse it.”

She wore gray.
He wore blue.
But their love defied the boundaries of war.
