A Candle in the Middle

I sat on the stool

Staring at the quiver

in the mirror

As if it was the analogy

of Time

A liquid pocket

A vertical river

Passage to a secret universe

A simple candle in the middle

Tantalisingly suggestive

A portal to that other place….

Land of the waiting dreams

Lifetime in reverse

The number thirteen….


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!
