A moment of silence to take in the fragrance steaming from the cup.
The ceramic vessel of warmth spreads from the hands into the arms and letting the muscles liberate.
Anticipation of the sharp bite of caffeine grows. Ultimately cooled by sugar; sweetening the blow.
To halt and let blank thoughts flood the mind. Colors start to come alive. Black and white mornings become vivid days.
Settled. Recharged. Contemplating not moving. Just letting things go.
