Coffeehouse aromas
suffuse senses, dissolving 
any semblance
of time.
Unsolved problems
melt away in a
conscious uncaring,
and the day slips, unnoticed.
Deep in a forest
serene daydreams pour
gently over a secret waterfall
into a moss-fringed pool, 
a peaceful place.
My calm immersed, 
I hear only the
soft, slow whisper 
and smooth syllables of
a single word.
