coffee in the corner


one day in a cafe

I took my coffee in the corner
far away from the busy front
I sat at a square speckled table
under a dim white light

I took my coffee with milk
creamy, smooth and white
I sipped and licked my lips
and smiled in secret delight

I took my coffee a little bitter
with a strong bite and flavor
I stroked the cup holding the brew
watching the people in the queue

I took my coffee with me
and sat in a quiet corner
and enjoyed my company
as my thoughts began to gather

cafes are good for many things, reading a favourite book on a rainy day, people watching in the afternoon or just simply finding inspiration for my writing.
