empty coffee cups
or mugs full of chai
hidden from the afternoon chill where
quaint tunes drift past and
the smell of cinnamon lingers.
a yellow vase
of pink flowers
next to a chocolate on the counter
brings sunshine to my day
when all I can think of is you.
they say emotions let you understand the world better
I found it's true
as I sipped the last of my chai
hoping you'll end up in the leaves
because if life imitates art
you're everywhere in mine
