Old grey cobblestone
The old grey cobblestone leads to the archway
in front of the church that supports the bell which rings at seven.
How many footsteps have touched it’s surface? Footsteps that carried the dreams and sorrow of many.
as the bell rings
the lights start to glow dangling from their cord like a vine over the street.
People casually walk through the courtyard peering into windows
talking and laughing
Voices slightly heard
through gradually darkening air voices carefully crafting verses
Life is easily seen
from the second floor terrace peace in it’s purest shape trust and truth.
