a twist of taste upon the tongue
swirls through a tapestry
of some great chef's creation

then the cream that lightens up
the coffee in the coffee cup
vanilla flavor lightly kissing
the slight spice of cinnamon

all melting so delightfully
as moisture meets its guest
that love surges to the tip
of a tongue so long denied
its nourishment

and we learn to live again
in a childhood without end
life renewed within the blend
of taste's sensation
