The Colour of Virginity

those silent clouds are
leaving the city
heading west
perhaps to the ocean
skywalkers
celestial dream catchers
secretive
passing over the deeds
of men
carrying the tears of the earth
innocent in white
floating wads of cotton wool
but only in white
against the blue
the colour of today
the promise of tomorrow
Blue
the colour of virginity
the blotting paper of humanity

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!
