stained glass
obscures the view

About dwk758

When I was in the 6th grade, I was fascinated by a brief section in my World History book about ancient Greece and the philosophers, mythology, and original Olympics. I wrote my first poem about it that started: "Ancient Greeks and old time Romans...". Ever since it has been an elaboration on that theme...and I have wandered far afield.

    I love this Haiku. We have stained glass in church and I’m able to relate with your lyrics. More like if you want to see what is beyond these glasses, then you need to step in!

      That’s so true. Can you imagine, in the time before the electric light-before our eyes had become so jaded, what it must have been like for a peasant to enter a cathedral for the first time? Divine inspiration, I’m sure! Thank you for the comment and ‘like’.
