On visiting Salisbury Cathedral

Another drop in the chalice

You are ultimately


And so is

Your pain

It flows into a vessel

Nothing is ever lost

of what you felt

You walk just slightly

Above the departed

Leaving just enough room

For their ideas to

Brighten your path

If you remember to live in a way

That would have made them proud

In their abode of light

Then drop by drop

The chalice is filled

And in the very end

The golden cornucopia

Will bear rich fruit

For all

I have been to Salisbury Cathedral, also to Cologne, although I have not yet written a poem in my "Memories" sequence about either city. Perhaps I will.

Sometimes i'm sure poems win an award because no-one else had entered, you on the other hand would win even if the entire site entered! Congrats on the award Heike, another one that's very much deserved.

--What a beautiful thought this is. The language of the soul. Thank you for sharing this.

Elegant, and I find it a bit sensual in a modest sense.

Beautifully expressed; every word in it's rightful place.


Congrats on the award!

what I really appreciate in this poem is the image that becomes "solid". Then I am able to taste it, drink it and swallow the liquid from the chalice. Great work! Thank you!

I read this poem several times before daring to say something. All I dare to say is that this poem is very inspired, very smart. And it leaves a sensation of optimism and tranquility. Very beautiful, but from you, all that comes, is beautiful.

I've just come back from England, during which, in my role as godfather, I had to attend a few ceremonies in a few churches. This great poem makes me wish one of them had been Salisbury cathedral. But I'm sure a poet of your calibre would find inspiration wherever you went. I love the motif you present here, of the drops of our life flowing into a chalice which, at the end of a life lived well, will be our rich reward. Great work Heike.
