Coffee Dreaming


Some Mornings
find you like this:
Looking at the world through a window,
Pretending to meditate
While losing yourself

In the depth of
Your Caffè Macchiato
At a small neighborhood cafè,

When all of a sudden,
The morning begins to move and
The world rolls by
On wheels

Leaving you behind,
Speechless,
With only the clank
Of the streetcar
Still in the air.

  1. @ Juju,
    and you would not mind if the streetcar left you behind, staring into the empty cup? ;-)

    @ Vicki Lane,
    life's stranger than fiction, isn't it? ;-)

  4. Oh lovely. I live to see things like this, coffee in hand or not. With that, I shall go back to the stove-top moka & brew some more. Cheers.

  6. These days Vienna is just about the only place I drink coffee! Once you've drunk coffee there, it really doesn't taste the same anywhere else. (And by Vienna really I mean the Braunerhof!)

  8. Merisi, thank you for visiting my Easter views. I'm glad you liked that view of the plaza. The Park Ave. tulips should be showing their stuff soon.

    What beautiful flowers you found and photographed at the market. And those shiny Red eggs are remarkable.

    Now. On to coffee. That neighborhood cafe would be a place I would want to enter. That speeding advert on the tram adds something to the morning, for sure. However, I think that coffee in Vienna is not just about velocity, it is also about style, grace, tradition, appreciation.

    May I say that your posts also feature these features? xo

  10. How dumb am I. I thought it was a rolling Ikea store, not an ad on a streetcar--sheesh! (Need. More. Coffee.) Excellent!

  12. I couldn't figure out exactly what I was looking at until I scrolled down. I love the streetcars/trams of Europe.
