Come, enjoy this enjoyment,

you roasted, ground up beans
soaking yourselves to flavor
this lively liquid,
this cup of hot java,

you laying hens for
your eggs, sunny side up.
Welcome, eggs, to these taste buds.
Make yourselves at home

and all you workers
and your machines
that plant, harvest, transport,
prepare, cook and deliver.

Enter into this moment's attention
suffused with just plain thanks.
Celebrate together with me and
this unifying universe that all of us are,

the diversifying diversity we be,
this coming in and going out of presence,
leaving traces of memory
to season the seasons
of eons yet to be named.

Take these thoughts,
let them find their ways into
our mosaics of meanings.
