The Perfect Cup ~ a collaboration of Art and Poetry



If I were blind, I would know she was here
Her perfume wafts through the shop’s air
Breathing her in, my morning muse sparks
The lady whose latte is poured from my heart
A stainless steel pitcher warms in my palm
The steam raises the stakes for the perfect cup
My nerves tingle to wish her a good morning
Her smile captures mine, leaves me yearning
The aroma escapes from freshly pressed coffee
Filling it up with milk, steamy hot and frothy
Finishing it off with a heart shaped top

I present it to her, wait and watch
My anticipation climbs
And stops me from moving
Holding my breath
Until her first sip is taken
Like a kiss from sleep awaken

Other customers can wait, my heart just might break
My love for her is more than I can take
The rush hour line, is now out the door
But she’s the only beauty here on the floor
The look on her face, made mine drop
Perhaps I made it too steamy hot
Oh no, I’m hanging my head low
She doesn’t like this coffee, it’s clear, I know
But she whispers sweetly; let’s try a new brew
Just so you know, Sir, I come here for you
And your heart, that you put on top

Mr M, thank you for this opportunity to share a moment with you.
