Prague

RudolphC

Weaving into narrow dark ancient lanes

Through a corridor of walls all the same

Towards a forest of iron columns

 ———–

Sunlight sparkles from a mirror of slate

Roof tiles extend into extended space

Overhead silent stands a clock tower.

———-

Relentlessly, the hands move slowly forward

No forgiveness shown towards the fallen

Here is the chosen goblet of Golgotha.

———-

Caught in a tragedy with no escape

Held captive in my forlorn despair

I cry for heavens divine direction.

———-

I wander the street looking for a sign

An indication of all that I need

To dwell in the shelter of redemption.

———–

    Hope you will have time to make visits to other people’s poetry this week. We ALL enjoy them.

    What a heavy poem this is–I feel the despair and hope you will find what you are looking for. I visited Prague once years ago but was there in the early fall so not so dark and gloomy.
