The Cappuccino Muse

God and Wisdom.

I’m reading The Path by Laurie Beth Jones, a book I read 16 years ago and for some reason it reminded me of a poem written by Walt Gilbert.  He is a resident and musician in the Okanogan “Good Medicine” Valley in the state of Washington and shared the poem with me a few weeks ago that he wrote.  The inspiration came from latte froth designs that Melanie Mills, owner of Salmon Creek Coffee Company was working on.

A Cuppa Cappuccino by Walt Gilbert


The aroma enhancing the air

Drifts to and fro

It fills our senses, connects our spirits

We share it as one

As it rises from a mug so fine.


A cuppa cappuccino

A centerpiece of art

Displayed for feasting eyes like fancy desserts

Where real  yuppies dine.


It challenges me

It questions my soul

How to taste the brew ‘neath the froth

And not ruin the design.

Walt's Muse: A Cuppa Cappuccino

 Inspiration found in the everyday. 

Thank you, Walt.
