Mocha-Fueled Musings

Mocha-Fueled Musings by Jaimee Boake

I wrap my hands around the mug,

breathing deeply, 

and it warms me to my core, 

like a welcoming hug from an old friend.

Settling down by the window

I relish the sun on my face, the buzz in the air. 

Coffee shops, to me, are like airports, 

in that I like to watch people come and go, 

fabricating the stories that brought them to this moment

in my mind. The first sip fortifies me

and I put pen to paper to see

where these mocha-fueled musings may take me today.

Momentum by Jaimee Boake

A tiny ballerina twirls

on a stage

which looks too big

but is


compared to her dream.
