Between us, the steam
of your coffee and my tea.
And all the reasons
I braved the rain running down
this café’s sweaty windows.

If it's not a tanka, it's good enough to be called one anyway.

Marvellous diction, highly atmospheric, you place the reader right there.

A perfect poem (and a tanka, even if you didn't mean to write one).
