Light Falls

By Scott Bailey © 2018

Light falls
Through the ancient arch
How much light
Has fallen
Through the years
Upon
Lovers joined
The dearly departed
Those welcomed with blessings
Of water
The cold
The hungry
The repentant
The angry
The sinners

The light has fallen
Age has won
All those lighted memories
Nothing
Now the vessel
Is emptied
And ruined

Only the ghost
Of the shape
Of constraint

In response to my daily prompt Constraint (Originally written for Sue Vincent’s Thursday Photo prompt)
