Cappuccino Smile (rev)

the aromas
of that conversation
the brimming cappuccino
smile swirled in chocolate
rich and cinnamoned
gentle coffee curlicues
interlaced in arabesques
of creamy foam redolent
upon your lips
lilted in the cup of
your countenance
glazed in syrup gilt

Your words were velvet
plumes of soothing
honeyed dews
you tea-spooned
in my mind
the flavoured greetings
savoured fleeting
glimpses of delight
the jasmine scented night
tasting of Swiss pastries
sugared and freshly baked
