cathedral window
a candle in the chapel
lit by a sunbeam

    cathedral window--
    better seen from the inside
    to appreciate

    I like that one, Ed. It weaves all the senses together just like the experience in many beautiful cathedrals.

    kitchen window-
    single blue rose 'gainst her cheek
    glisten by tears

    Beautiful Margaret,I loved how your poem flowed together.The 5/7/5 haiku system was there to me that's a plus.
    {The skies a prism,}
    {It looks like a cathedral,}
    {Bursting with colors.}
    Take Care,Darleen

    hole in the blocked wall-
    a tuft of feather
    this sparrow adds to the nest
