Sitting there in the coffee shop
Walls covered in yellow paint and Art
The floors checkered red, white, and black,
Light beams through the windows
Sounds break the barrier.

A silver haired old man works on his smart phone
Connected to everything, and focused
His paper and binder rest ever close ready for use
The 12oz coffee with rainbow straws rests within reach
The old man focuses.

A young woman sits near
Her black hair is pulled back as she focuses with energy on her laptop
Her phone, coffee, and water are close by
Her space crackles with energy
She sits on the edge of her seat.

A younger man
He speaks
The people react
The Spirit moves
The Father is present
The young man drinks his Americano
Life goes on.
