Standing by the coffee shop,

I was enjoying the moments

Of being wooed by the aroma;                                                                             

A harmless flirtation with my senses

When my mouth watered to the possibility,

Relishing melting chocolate

Layered in a matronly cover –

A hard crust, my mind’s eye could not

Peer into, to delve the soft side. 

Eyes remained fixed on the rising sun.
