Quiet Contemplation

As you drink steaming hot coffee
In a proper white china mug, you can
Relax within a perfumed ambience
Of quiet contemplation.

If you grab a silly plastic coffee bottle
From a convenience store
You’ll miss the subtle aroma,
The quiet contemplation.

March 2006, Tokyo

Excellent. I couldn't have expressed better; or agreed with you more on its contents.

I also believe in a good cup of coffee in a china mug that I enjoy leisurely sipping.
