The Window : The Boy on the Street

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

The Boy on The Street


The entire world passes by

While she remains static

Finding relief from her reminiscences

Her morose thoughts


A young man passes by

An inquisitive light in his eyes

She knows not his name

It’s but a trifling detail


She welcomes the anonymous exchanges

A smile

Sometimes a wave

And assembles a hazy dream

Of carefree tomorrows

And hopeful todays

Florentine street

And that I am retracing history
