    “Uno café con leche, por favor”

    …I hear the echo of my own voice
    as if in a tunnel….

    the waitress had been so polite
    she scribbled my order on her pad~
    in her broken English she
    asked if I would like something else


    …I’m laughing again
    that same mischievous
    sensation is flowing through me…

    I answered a small, “no thank you”,
    while my mind was screaming
    “WHAT I WOULD LIKE IS
    NOT ON THE MENU HERE!!!”

    Cabo San Lucas was beautiful
    last summer … in my memory,
    the ocean view from the patio
    of that tiny restaurant
    still leaves me breathless


    …… in between sips….I slip
    into quiet, far away thoughts
    of past/present/future
    otherwise insignificant
    ~everyday
    happenings

    thoughts
    that somehow,
    always find him waiting

    hot, steaming, sweet….and creamy

    like my morning cup of coffee

    ummhmmmm

    ain't nothing missing in the translations, here, Ms. gurl .... and ain't it crazy how the smallest details of life...the seemingly unimportant stuff of our day can make us remember SOMETHING delicious about "him".

    Feelin the flow, fo sho!

    what an enjoyable way to reflect on last summer...

    and the coffee sounded good.."hot, steaming, sweet"..then you had to go and add.."and creamy"..well that just took on a whole other meaning...

    loved this one too...

    Amiga...

    siempre escrite del mundo con ojos muy preciosos...y cuando leemos que escrite...tenemos, si solamente por uno memento...un mundo perfecto..quere la recuerda del amor y cafe con leche es todas buscamos en el dia

    translation

    [friend...

    always you write about a perfect world with your precious eyes...and when we read you...we have..if only for just a moment...a perfect world...where the memory of love and coffee with milk is all we are looking for on any given day...]
