Cathedral Ceiling

Cathedral Ceiling

A Poem by Kathy Van Kurin
"

a precious natural room; sky my ceiling, woodland surrounding my fresh place of solitude.

"

 

       Cathedral Ceiling

 

 Cathedral ceiling, solid cream vault of sky,

 Isolated under your umbrella of beauty

 I feel welcomed.


 As flutes lending their sweet voice,

Woodland song birds echo and call


This place of outdoor freshness 

is really their own.

I am glad!


What prestige! What Joy!

To visit their home unencumbered,


For it is a simple room.

This room of peace invites my being to lift itself,
 to fly, to dream.

If this touches even one person I think that would be really nice. I write because it is satisfying and many times only when it comes naturally. Hope everyone continues to find inspiration and enjoyment in life. Let's all keep finding wonderful things to write about.

Dear Kathy,
You have taken me to this heavenly place, to Nature's beautiful cathedral, where a city boy rarely ventures.
Now, that you've swept me up and stood me here beside you in this soul-inspiring world of peaceful splendor, I feel a deep sense of home in my heart, waking dreams in wondrous joy.

Beeeautiful free versing, Kathy … I love it so.
Thank you M'Lovely Lady-Poet 🍃 ⁓ Richard 🤗


PS: I adore the picture, too … it would keep the ambience alive if it were displayed above your poem, like the cathedral ceiling, itself. 🎶

There is something so uplifting about Faith. Those who shun the path of God, are shunning the way to good. The cathedral ceiling to me is a metaphor for aspiration, redemption and salvation. Nicely done, Kathy.

A beautiful poem. I was lucky. I traveled Europe for three years. I went to many of the great churches. I understand your words. The beauty of them left you in silence. Thank you Kathy for sharing the amazing poetry.

I'm pulled between the beauty of cathedral architecture and the majesty of nature. Really nice and it gives off such a peaceful calmness.

Since you read my first, I thought I would do the same and I'm so glad I did.

An ode of rapture for the canopy of our world...

An interesting use of comparison, the Cathedral as the ceiling of our Earth; certainly giving this poem a slightly religious tone.

Nice work.
