This Train Will Stop….

the sky whipped in clouds

of vanilla white

with trailing turfs

and spoonfuls of grey

in a sea of blue

silently suspended

a sun playing hide

and seek

a summer’s harvest

cut and baled

sitting in the morning


this train will stop

at every station

tempting me

to mitch, seek adventure

and maybe i will….


Paolo Michell

NB the word “mitch” means absent without leave or a child

skipping school.



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!
