Absent Friends

shadow and evening sun

dances across the flagstone


stops a while

catching me unaware

a familiar scene


and yet

a haunting ambience


the echoing void of

absent friends

here and now

bell like in my ear

light and dark

life and death

a feeling

as one grows older

that unrelenting reminder

how precarious

this fleeting existence

the outer skin of


ever changing , and yet

the same

moving through the labyrinth

of latent realities

what wisdom have we gleaned?


By Paolo Michell



About pmisteil

Hi, my name is Paul though I write under other names like, Thatcher and Paolo, I love literature, art and architecture their passion and drama....the contradictions. The notion of Truth-who is the person behind the mask? Or does it matter! I like long walks and longer conversations over cappuccinos in a cafe with atmosphere and the rest is a journey!
