Last Night

Did you not

wake up this morning?

It was orchestrated

miraculously

Did you have control

over that or whatever

transpired last night

while you slept?

So why worry

about anything?

Instead, pray about

everything

Tell God what you need

Thank Him for all

He has done

Thank Him for

what He will do

Then you will experience

God’s peace, which exceeds

anything you can

understand

His peace will

guard your heart; 

Your mind

You woke up this morning

didn't you?

Inspired Writings


Cup o' Tea?

Cooking- not my forte'
Cooking- not on today
For this day is limitless
Got so many other things I can do
Cooking- not on the menu


Cooking
I can't miss
what I don't do
No need, if it's
what is done by you 


Cooking
Just another 
chore, so I won't bother
getting hot ‘n sweaty
cause I'm getting ready
for Dinnertime.
Not prepared by me
since cooking is
not my cup o' tea  

Just give me Coffee!

Morning!


Don't touch me
Don't call my phone
or alert me in any way
shape or form
Cause all you'll get
are grunts n groans
Unless you confirm 
'Coffee's On!'

Waste Not


Your mind 
Your thoughts 
Your time 
Your finds 
Manifestations 
Inclinations 
Dedication 

Tranquility
Equanimity 
Retro-ness 
Your mind 
Your musicality 
Your creativity 
Your musing 
Your fusing 
Intrepidity 
Dynamically 
Your mind 
Bodaciously 
You're defined 
Your mind.. 
A terrible thing
to waste.

Is It Over?


On  Hold! 
Not enough
time in a day
Things are not
going my way
Reminders
Deadlines
Declines
Timelines
Fine lines
Offline
Combines
No time!
Recline
PLEASE
Fix-It, Coffee!!

Hi. I'm PJ Payne and I can remember as a child how freshly brewed coffee started my mother's day and most of her evenings. It is reminiscent of calm and simplicity and has stayed with me ever since.  Now, as an adult, it is in these moments of peace that I am able to exhale, reflect and embrace the essence of my mind and spirit through words.

First thing in the morning before my day begins, I go to my special place of peace, perfect peace: My Coffee and Thee. No matter the environment, the aroma of coffee takes me to that corner of nostalgia. 

 With pen at hand and precious moments of serenity, I express innermost emotions and thoughts in short stories, poetry, and prose; some even sprinkled with my dry wit and humor. My concept: "There is a poem for every situation, prose for every circumstance and a card for every special day and special person."

 

Blessings,

~PJ Payne

Coffee and Thee presents-

Your Coffee Fix

Dwarfed

Stuck In a rut? 
Career 
Marriage 
Work 
Relationship 
Attitude 
Tradition 
Some-- willful 
Some-- inherited 
Some-- others put you there 
All-- hindrances to what God has. 
Longer you stay
Longer you're stunted 
Longer you're delayed 
Kept from growing 
Be Prayerful 
Be Peaceful
Be Powerful 
Be Productive 
In a rut? 
Get out!

Joy


Be glad in it
Whatever trials
Life sends you
Be glad in it

Whatever situations,
Life transitions,
Struggles you face,
Endeavors you embrace,
Ventures
not yet conquered
Be glad in it

Whatever 
this today brings 
Be Glad In It
You're not alone-
For He is your joy

 An Eye


On your mind
as you reach
certain pivotal
times in your life
Realize -
He's still watching over you

As you venture
with gains
losses
and strife
Realize -
He's still watching over you

He comes across
your mind
when you least expect it
Things you do and say
inadvertently
reflect it
Without realizing
His impact
as you ponder
and it resonates
Realize -
He's still watching over yoy
