Hues of Iced Tea!!!

the warm heat and a still air above the street
praying for some life to move
some air to flutter the trees
And a chartreuse fibrous lime iced tea 

a wooden bench in a cafe on the street
translating eyes on books 
people laughing on the unexpected absurdities
And a green smooth apple iced tea  

a sun through the bright winter snow
grey jackets and scarfs 
hot air and water pumped from the ducts
And a black granular berry iced tea 

a party in a classy apartment building
suits, dresses and dinner jackets
a subtle luster on the salads and cheese and forks 
And a bloody orange thick pomegranate iced tea

a beach house 
a palm tree and the wavy water
sand castles standing tall against the salty sea
And a yellow crystal mango iced tea

a little time to oneself over this table
a bit of self introspection
drops around the cold glass reflecting some leaves
And a swirl and splash of momentary destinies.

The Coffee Dust!!!

What if the coffee bean cracks open a little
And out pours a puff 
I will be then looking at the coffee dust,
which in the light might show its dance of swirls

It will be like a brown colored mist above a hazy desert,
golden tinge of the hair curls 
A dance which will be quieter than a stranded chair
yet will wake up the world to their morning scuttling feet.

How would i, but tell it from other dust
Maybe by how it will set up a smell of thick concentrated dreams
And a mirage where everyone will see their’s
such is the coffee dust

But soon in a while the coffee dust will settle down 
Burden of long hours of the afternoon 
Will it be the time to crack again the bean then,
the next wave of dreams to let burst.
