Medieval needles, 
pierce the velvet dusk
Before midnight blue,
the light passes through
A much punctured sky
is hardly a shame
For these tiny holes,
bring stars into view

Sunday Abroad: Prague at Sunset


Minutes before, rain poured

and choked the light

Falling streams halted

so the sun could breathe

The day bids adieu

in pink and orange hues

Special Note: This is the first post in a new series entitled Sunday Abroad. Each week I’ll showcase a photo  from my travels along with the words it inspires. While I’ll miss putting together posts for Sunday in London, I hope new places and inspiration will create a worthy successor.  Thanks always for reading!
