The little anglican church

The little anglican church

In the nave
two chairs with arms
look at each other

on the
trail of window sills
queen anne’s lace
sun and shadow

above the altar
a collage of local
hills and houses
church and local theatre
train at the station

the place I get off
is where love
and grief collide
just a feeling

when the Shepherd
comes looking
for me
when His heart
i’ll run
the road
of paradise
won’t look
