A sip of coffee with sweet foam
brings me to my childhood home.
Scents and flavors interweave
playful thoughts kept me naive.
Mystical nights on the phone,
magical days of unknowns,
chose pretend and make-believe,
painted world my eyes conceived.
A gulp of water twist of lime,
brings me back to present times,
offering all I can give,
forming the life I will live.
Obtain all the goals I crave,
heartbeats strong, feeling so brave,
knowing all actions I see,
are directed back to me.
A guzzle of pure love and light
transports me to a bright sight.
Sparkles twinkle on my face,
formless body kissed with grace.
All good things will follow through,
build the stories pick and choose,
ask a question, build a view,
then examine what I drew.
