Coffeehouse of Dreams – a sensual ambience!


In my imagination there is a Cafe. I call it my Coffeehouse of Dreams. The atmosphere of the softly lit room is warm and inviting. You can smell the rich earthy aroma of freshly brewed coffee each time you walk hthrough the door. There is the low hum of people speaking to one another. A quiet rattling of utensils on dishes as people eat morning or evening fare.

The Cafe always has just the right number of customers. A few are known by name, others are strangers. Some are couples. You can tell by the way they lean in towards each other when they speak …

hands touchingΒ …occasionally holding hands across the table. He reaching across to wipe a strand of hair away from her face as they gazing into each others eyes while sipping their coffee.Β He takes for granted that he can touch her. She takes for granted that he does so. It is romantic and intimate.

The Cafe is a sensual place, made more so by the smells and OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAsounds and Β taste of things. An ambience of alluring flavors. The cafe is comfortable but with an edge of mystery to it, where a stranger might come into the coffeehouse at any time.

He might decided to sit down beside me where I usually sit. in one corner of the room, with my coffee and my book. The latest best seller or perhaps a beloved classic being read again for the hundredth time.

“Yes,” I would respond.

As with the romantic couple I mentioned, the stranger’s eyes would hold mine in an embrace; a look that captures, making the universal connection, not of surrender (not yet). but of the beginnings of the dance of love. First, shy playfulness and masterful responses. My mind has raced ahead to the possibilities I read in his probing searching glance.

After all I am in my Coffeehouse of Dreams!

Thank you for your visit, I hope you enjoyed! Make today fun – both dreams and reality!

  2. Wow! Now that’s a coffeeshop I’d love to visit… and write on a table next to a window that overlooks…. anything… anything at all. It’s an aromatic alluring idea.

  3. nice amiga! i work with a coffee company here in ecuador, and they are building a new ‘complex’ where the entire process will be under one roof. People will smell the aroma of roasting coffee for blocks and blocks! I’ll send this to Miguel, CEO of ESCoffee in Guayaquil! z

  4. I loved visiting your coffee house. I am not quite as romantic, but I once invited friends over to read poetry. We had a spotlight, a stool, in a darkened candle-lit house with wee tables. Had a blast!

  5. This is so sweet. It reminds me of a song by Greg Brown called “Dream Cafe.” You might enjoy it, I bet it’s on YouTube.
    “..And I can still smell the lilacs,
    in the corner of The Dream Cafe…”

  6. The way you described that, it was remarkably like a coffee shop near where I live. The lights in the walls change colour giving off a rotating low ambience. So I can see the attraction of a coffee house of dreams.

    Somewhere to go with someone or to meet someone. πŸ™‚
