A Cup of Coffee

After a week of misty dullness
The sun came out today
With the sky showing some blue
And the blanket of snow
Melting under my feet
Making brown patches
On the milky white snow cover
Listning to the crumbling
Sounds of the ice crust
Under my feet
I walked down to the mall
To sit at the table
Our table...
Girl with two pony tails
At the coffee counter
Lifted her eye brows
And looked over my shoulder
'mmm... just one today...? '
Sipping the bitter black liquor
Looking across at the empty chair
I couldn't help
But to see you there
With the cofee cup on the table
Nested between your elbows
Your lower arms making a triangle
With your chin resting on your mitted hands
Those darker than dark pupils
In the centers of brownish irises
Dancing slightly
To the rythm of the giggle
Trying to escape
Through those smiling lips....

'Did you ever ever loved someone? '

[Raththaran... to you! ]

Poem of the Day

poet Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

I heard the bells on Christmas day
Their old familiar carols play,
And wild and sweet the words repeat
Of peace on earth, good will to men.
