And This Is It!

this a Sunday afternoon

the general mood, pleasant

in a side room

in a Costa cafe

(an old book shop)

now forgotten

reading war poetry

sipping coffee

reconciling war and peace

in a time of urban


a group of (Sunday) artists


discussing art and life

exchanging efforts

slowly the group enlarges

my presence fluctuates

between eavesdropper and benign


reluctantly half listening

though occasionally peeping

over thinly framed lens

then, i decide to write

a poem

about casual encounters

and this is it! 

it’s life evolving….

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!
