Friday Fiction – 100 words is the ideal to “story” the picture of the week.
Reaching Heaven Through Architecture
archways reach to the heavens.
hallowed and hell-bound tucked into nooks,
saints and demons – all have a gory story.
signs of the trinity glassed in windows
father, son, and holy ghost
forever present to those looking in and peering out.
crests of pomp and position remind
that separation of church and state is
a myth of mystical proportions.
signs that redemption and everlasting
life are obtained by following the well-worn
path of pave-stones trod by masses.
however, I will bolt through
the unbolted, open wide archway doors and fly –
freedom. likely heaven-bound, a chance I’ll take.

I thank my parents for the liberal art degree, all tuition paid provided it was obtained at Catholic colleges. One would think a couple of Marquette grads would know better than to have me taught by Jesuits. 😉
