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
