Un petit café noir: A small black coffee

Missing out on my coffee in company at the moment!!

Between Two Tides.

Rose glow of ambience, turned faces recognise, smiles and greetings made. Hands reach out, cheek to cheek kisses, “Bonjour” and “Ça va” spoken. “Un petit café noir, si’l vous plait”. “A small black coffee please”.

A chair is offered, news exchanged, dialogue and dispute, advice and acrimony. Journal passed in turn, maybe a game of Belotte (cards). Another round of coffees, morning ritual slowly ends. “A demain matin”, “See you tomorrow morning”.


In Le Monseg’ Jean Mi drinks his coffee

When Jean Louis joins him feeling lucky

He takes out his card

And scratches it hard

Youpy, won a euro on the lottery.
