The Window : The Boy on the Street

the window

The view from inside the first courtyard of The Palazzo Vecchio- the town hall of Florence, Italy.

The Boy on The Street

-0-

The entire world passes by

While she remains static

Finding relief from her reminiscences

And her morose thoughts

`

She sees a young man on his way to work

An inquisitive light in his eyes

She knows not his name

It’s but a trifling detail

`

She welcomes the anonymous exchanges

A smile and sometimes a wave

And assembles a hazy dream

Of carefree tomorrows

And hopeful todays

Retracing History- Florentine Streets

Florentine street

Did Michelangelo, Botticelli, da Vinci, Donatello traverse these streets?

Perhaps not

But I like to think otherwise

And that I am retracing history

Wow! What a feeling!
