Cathedral

Heaven's eye trawls history's wall to find
ghostly kings who patrol cathedral halls, holy
elegies enthral. The inquiring bells bind
threads missing from Canterbury's tapestry.
Sun passes through miracle windows, discrete saints
seek seers among the tourist multitude. Cathedral
forms attract heaven's eye to forever haunt
saints governed by glass. Fading voices fall
away from Christmas mass. Moonlight tempts Anselm
to trespass, miracles are tested, passed, waiting
for prayer. The morning sun gloves moonlight's palm,
dreams arm elusive architects who are designing
a staircase without end as I walk through
Canterbury, the churches within are built anew.

I am impressed how the various pieces were woven together in this piece - halls, bells, windows, glass, staircase - each contributing an image to support the theme. Nice one, eclipse/Barry.
