A sequence of three-liners on the theme of cathedrals, stone and vegetal, inspired by Andrea Connolly’s Advent poem: Illuminate!
Coloured light on stone,
Cold flagstones where feet have trod,
Feet have trod on cold light.
Massy grey of silent stone,
Monumental veneration of vastness,
With eyes of coloured glass.
Grey stone, sun-caught glitters,
Silver-rippled water gleams,
Stained glass glows, filled with light.
Pale sun pours through branches,
Shadow dapples the russet red path,
Birds flit, flutter, leaves wind dance.
Cold sun on mist-spangled grass,
Green light and blue mist,
Red leaves scatter the December river.
Feet tread mist-spangled grass,
Stone-flagged rainbows echo hollow,
Hushed feet tread, robin sings.
