She dipped a poem in her pumpkin spice latte

Eyes filled with honey

She smiled as she took a bit tossing her head full fiery locks she chewed and hummed 

The tune dripping like cinnamon 

She licked her crimson lips 

Laughing orange notes into the air

Her voice crisp like leaves

She orders more poetry

When they come

They are soft and warm

She takes another bite 

The goodnessmelts on her tongue 

All sugar and sweet

The next poem is her favorite 

It drips with chocolate turtle apple slices with a hint of nutmeg

She closes her eyes

Stomach filled with warm dreams and happiness

She drinks the last drop of her latte

Full, satisfied, and inspired

She picks up a golden pen

Opening her little journal 

She gazes dreamily at September's trees Then dive into her thoughts and begin to write
