Church Of Saint Ann

May 19th, 2013 by Magdalena Tabor
Unceremoniously entering
By her side door,
Stopping to catch my breath
Hushed in awe.
More chapel than church.
No less Divine.
Without flaw.

Drenched in palest
Aqua Blue,
Watered in sea green glass.
Immersed in saintly aura
One could be devoted.
One could hope to ask.

Even you could not resist
The gaze of the Madonna
And stayed,
Lit the candle for your father
Where they left the wedding bouquet.

    Julie Walters Slattery Read Sacre Bleu by Christopher Moore. It is an interesting take on sacred blue used in religious paintings.

    Magdalena, love this poem!! I will always think of the best day of my life, (my wedding day) when I read this poem. Your words could not have captured this beautiful church any better. I thank you for that.

    Thanks, Bonnie. We enjoyed being part of your special day. The church is just so beautiful and mesmerizing. A wonderful out-of-the-way place to go and reflect. I’m glad you chose it.
