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.

Author's Note

Kathy Van Kurin
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.

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.

wow...thank you my dear friend for your beautiful words. Believe me, it is you who has encouraged me
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.

as I read this I am instantly shifted to the many travels and outdoor adventures I have had, we need to be reminded of what's out there, just how precious it all is I think .... for when I am trekking through the Aussie Bush or the Himalaya's or elsewhere nature touches my soul and reminds me I am alive ...

You are so lucky to have one such place for yourself XX
