Ultimate Cathedral, poem by Richard Bunce






















Orthodox church, image by nextvoyage, on Pixabay




Ultimate Cathedral


vaulted, ornate

etched stone

cupola with cross


imposing pulpit

in carved wood

deep red carpeting


windows bold

in story and color

organ pipes aplenty


cannot compete

with the eloquence

of a Bethlehem stable
