Observing the Coffee Shop People... And a Little Love and Passion - Entry 5

This story started as I sat at the coffee shop on writing days observing people for character development.

Reading over it one day I  decided to write a short story based on the characters.  I kept it in the form of a journal.

February 14….
Today is Valentines Day. I think I see all kinds of love in this coffee shop.  The world is so blessed to have all types of love to fit every life.   Wrote a little poem or sonnet or something for today.

            I hear your voice in the foggy mist
            I search my love to find you
            I know you are there I feel your presence
            But I can’t find you.
            My heart, my mind, my soul,
            Filled with your energy
            Fog is between us
            I reach my love but cannot touch you
            I hear your voice I cry out - my words bounce back
            Fog is thick
            I search my love to find you
            I need to see you
            Need to hear you
            Need to touch you
            Fog between us -
            Stops us cold.

Not sure what that means.  Not sure what this day means.  I see no one here today to write up as a character.  Coffee shops, writing, love, desire, passion, and age maybe it all means nothing.  Get more coffee… and chocolate....
