Looking west along the nave. This church is roughly one hundred paces in length, and is the former priory church.

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.

Haiku 2012 #2

soft indignation
flat third of a minor chord
world’s light in a cell
