Weekend coffee share?
Surely coffee is a metaphor? It isn’t?
Oh well, coffee it is.
Have you ever ‘zoned out’ while sipping a cup of coffee?
Sometimes all you need to tell your companions is silence; and sometimes all you need to listen to is silence.
To feel each gulp of the elixir going down your throat, to take in the colour, taste and smell of the liquid.
And then to close your eyes and think of someone you love.
To say a little prayer for them.
And finally to drown that prayer with another gulp.
