Glass, no stain


The window glass is not clear
but it is not colored, no stain
to reflect reds, yellows, blues.
The light filters through,
suffusing and bathing the interior
and this on a cloudy day.

This poem is submitted to Open Link Night at dVerse Poets. To see more poems, pleasevisit the siteThe links will be live at 2 p.m. Central time today. 

The poem was inspired by my attending a Sunday service at Westminster Chapel, London.

This piece leaves me with a serene feeling that works so well with your image... I fell like I'm sitting silent in that church...

it does not have to be stained...even if it is...as long as the light gets in...we are all good...smiles.

Let in the light but perhaps only enough to allow minds to focus appropriately.

Witty title.

Yes, even on a cloudy day... the light... no matter what.

Haven't been here in a long time. Nice to visit again!
