Stray Cat Café - Poem by Dean Meredith

On a dreary day too poor for a name,
He dragged himself down to the little café,
Flat white and a paper, always the same,
He fumbled for coins and something to say,
His hand struck silver, but his mind no gold,
The coffee machine frothed a mocking hiss,
His soft fingers touched the counter so cold,
And there she was, a sunny shining miss,
All glowing with life and lighter than air,
Pink lemonade cheeks and strawberry lips,
A chef’s hat hiding her blonde wistful hair,
Uniform jealously guarding her hips,
As soon as she smiled, his fears departed,
And that praise God was how it all started.

    Nice Poem. I hope the name of the place is not an indication of what's on the menu! (Report) Reply

    What an adorable piece. I think I have fallen in love with the Stray Cat Cafe. Wish that I could go there right this instant, teleport myself in to watch the drama going on. (Report) Reply
