Place of Worship – Senryu

what do you see march 26

Stone cold deserted

Gone, once a place of worship

That was long ago


Safe sanctuary

Before … To many lost souls

Meeting together


One congregation

Finding, needing guidance



Unsubstantial ghosts

Spirits to some remain here

  1. The somber, shadowy tones of the artwork was well matched by the feeling and words of your poem. Whenever I see or visit an old structure I always think about the lives connected to it. This said it well.

  5. Excellent piece, Susan. Makes me think about all of those buried in these old structures and wonder how many of them still walk the halls…
