Cafe Musings

Open eyed I stare at the simple setting 
waiting for the day to start,
the bread-baked scent of morning warms.
The grinder whirs and whirs,
beans fly, grounds brew, cream chills,
will you come?

Rose nails tap, finger wish to wrap
arms to bend as heart shaped chair backs
about the trunk of you, my Valentine.
Will you come?

Ah yes, you come, croissants in hand
reclaimed from the waiter, pull back my chair,
lay down a single rose. And we sit where love is wrought
encased in iron, all motions chaired by Cupid's bow.

    This is a very powerful piece of poetry that captures the senses. You do a great job of intertwining the vivid imagery of a cafe setting and lovely smells with the theme of love.

    Sounds inviting, Debs! I can smell the coffee being ground, and the butttery croissants baking. NIce ambiance for a Valentine's Day brunch. Kiwi must know that I'm writing to you, she's squeaky barking her head off downstairs. She really had loved you, she doesn't always care for everyone. Keep well, love, Mikki

    Good luck in the contest. I recently went to Israel and visited Yad Vashem and also saw the trees dedicated to the people who helped in saving people. I guess you were right when you said there are some good people out there. I used to sell radio time - business publications and other things. Now I work in a college - much more relaxing.
