The War Within


The joust begins
spirits beware
Cracked pavement
eroding shores
The light cowers
where dark prevails
Crumbling towers
broken stones
Sorrow clings
where joy flees

The remains of St. Dunstan-in-the-East, London, c.b.w.

    • Thank you. 🙂 Ivy is all over London, but I think it really give this old church a spark of life. After standing for centuries and barely surviving the blitz in WWII, it remains as a place to find peace.


  1. Beautiful picture. If this is all that remains, this wall, or partial wall, I can understand how this castle/land can bring mixed emotions. Sadness that it is no longer, and the possible scenario that caused it to become what stands today.
