Writing at Starbucks

Writing at Starbucks

There are times when
you just need to escape
to find your thoughts
and fill the blank page

I find myself running to
 Starbucks many times
for quiet and writing
letting my thoughts
flow freely
with coffee in hand

I pick my usual table
the music is playing
the others are laughing
I can hear deep conversations
yet tune them out easily
I let my fingers
keep typing away
I find a writing
rhythm here

it is comforting here
and time is productive
writing my thoughts
my poems
my innermost feelings
Starbucks and me
my writing safe haven
soy latte and words
what a great

finding myself
passing the time away
alone in the corner
writing the words
being with me and just me
