Comfort-satisfaction steam-feathers my mind;

my mug has this aura, a soul - 

a presence that, when I see this crafted, ergonomic beauty,

I enjoy pre-consumptive, pre-experiential, pre-appreciative mind-flutters,

I feel the blood-tingle, the brain sparkle,

the caffeine induced dull-relief sharpened clarity.

My mug.  I feel you. I would love you.

Had I not shattered you upon my floor.

Hi Martin - thank you for such a great comment! I'm really grateful, and pleased you liked the poem. thank you.😁

And Brian - yes, I'm the same - loads of mugs but just a few particular ones that do the business. For some reason, they just work.

We have about 20 everyday cups and mugs in our cupboard of which, given the choice, I select 4 or 5.
