Cafe

Tones of Joni Mitchell casting mellow notes
Across relaxed table tops

Fallen crumbs filled with music
Scatter and spread as each newcomer arrives

Curtains billow in the breeze of wafting memories
Fresh pastry infusing the air in the scent of simple times

Shoes shuffle in and out
Laces tied in a myriad of ways
Each pair walking a unique path

The coffee comes

Smiling froth lingers on Mona Lisa lips
As eyes look out at unseen scenarios and conversations
As the gaze of reflection deepens

A moment passes

Cutlery quietly rests on folded serviettes
Stainless steel catching the light
Like the flash of insights passing by

Espresso machine roars like a moving train
As we run to catch the ride
Warm milk soothing our tired and fearful places

The bill is paid
As hands find coins and legs begin to walk
A door opening as the ceremony ends

Artist's Description

In memory of a cafe I visited in the Mountains where it struck me what a simple and reflective ceremony having coffee is … often leaving you in a different place than where you started
