2396


in the chapel
there are some empty seats
presence
of sunlight peeping
in through the window

I like what this poem has to say about the so-called empty looking spaces, and the beautiful counterpoint they can offer.

Sherry Blue Sky said...

This poem transports me to an old church when i was young, sunlight streaming in.

I love that the chapel is filled with sunlight.

brudberg said...

I think there should always be some seats left for the sunshine.

Ah, but those empty seats are being filled by sunlight!

I want to send this to my parents--it's a beautiful reminder of the presences we see as absence but feel nearby.

Sanaa Rizvi said...

Beautiful!❤️ I love how the chapel is filled with sunlight (and perhaps whispering angels) Happy Sunday, Gillena!

I believe, as you probably know, with that sun light, those seats are not empty.
This was mysteriously beautiful.

perhaps in the gathering light we leave our chapel seats empty to seek a spiritual awakening outdoors in a cathedral of sunlight!!!

I picture a place of peace.

His presence
in the chapel
sunlight on empty pews
