Poem From A Picture: ‘Doorways’

The ruins of Crowland Abbey, Lincolnshire, England.

Doorways to nowhere,
ghosts whisper from parallel worlds
where alternate timelines run,
better worlds than our own.

From lime wood and oak
faith’s testimony emerged
A forgotten world

Whitewashed centuries
Stories reveal depth of faith
We merely marvel

Prague Churches, Some of the Best I’ve Seen Anywhere







These pictures are just a selection of some I took on a recent trip to Prague. Nothing could have prepared me for the sheer quality of the churches throughout the city. I can’t remember the names, I was simply blown away by the visual and spiritual feast.
