The Church of Claude and Pilot

by Johanna May

In the landscape of bliss
all rustlings are prayers
crisp as white crunch
comforting to new arrivals,
stomping away the last stains of sorrows
synchronous to each bell toll,
there is a church it says
within mountlings of snows,
or unknown street corners
found again,
like mythical terrains
we’ve long given up
would show.

A marvelous rediscovery of sacred places. I really enjoyed the vocabulary in this.

I LOVE the picture. I knew a pair of kitties named zippo, shoot can't think of the other one's name... I enjoyed reading the poem with the picture in sight and then reading it deliberately refusing the picture to see if it changes how the poem reads. It does add depth and dimension. Even the title changes meaning without the picture. Enjoyed this.
