I Saw God at Starbucks

With a whistle and a wink
and a sparkle in his eye
he said as he past,
“It is a most beautiful of days, like always!
Hope you laugh joyfully today!”
And before I could respond
he was gone, but the smile on my face
remained, as if frozen in time.
It wasn’t his words, per se,
or the other eccentric jollies He displayed,
but something in his eyes
that did not hold disguise,
tho I could not quite put my finger on it
so I ordered my
Venti Quad Iced White Chocolate Mocha
and sped off in my red Honda
to begin my day.
It wasn’t until later that I realized,
by the sparkle in his eye that bore no disguise…
I was struck!
I SAW GOD AT STARBUCKS!
