Through Harold lens:
Soft fog kissing Left Bank
Strolling narrow winding lane
Door to coffee roaster shop
Sense one kicks in
Rich coffee aroma waffs calm air
Light dew rests on tiny round table
My friend SLR Nikon takes chair two
“Bonjour!”. “Café?”, the white aproned waiter says
“Oui, s’il vous plaît. Dark French Roast
” More caffeine than shot of expresso.
Sense two kicks in
Grrrrrrr. Grrrrrrr. Grrrrrrr.
Bouncing coffee beans
Sense three kicks in
Deep, brown, grounds steep in hot water
Atop silver tray
Atop raised L-shaped arm
“Merci”, I smile.
Sense four kicks in
Mesh plunger plunges
Steam & hot coffee pour
Sense five kicks in
Heavy full body flows across lips
Intense. Distinct. Bold. Smoky. Smooth.
Romantically rich, full feeling lingers on my palate.
First morning cup
