Cathedral

The wet road
before the dawn
stretches out dramatically
A horizontal sheet of stained glass
in whose dark gritty facets
all our fragile light
lies reflecting

The world
is God’s cathedral
for those with eyes to see
Or ears for that matter to hear
in the swishing of the tires
angel wings graceful
passing close

About Peter Notehelfer

I'm a retired people person who now finds the time to watch the little details of the world without worrying about being watched by anyone . . . I live on an Island north of Seattle with my wife named Ellen, a yellow dog named McGee, a yellow cat named Gatzby, and four fine chickens . . . I read fiction, bake bread, smoke salmon, and fish whenever the weather allows . . . Oh, and yes, I try to write a poem every day simply to avoid senility!
