Walls – August 21, 2014

[…] “After all this is not a bad prison; but I do not like this wall between my cell and the next prisoner’s cell; Yet I assure you that I do not wish to reproach the warder not the Builder of the prison”.[…]

[…] “Sadness is but a wall between two gardens”. […]


the stone walls
have a well guarded door
rarely opened

inside the walls
lives the prisoner – alone
without a garden

stone on lonely stone
a wall built through the ages
beyond a cricket

  2. I was just watching a show this morning about how the ancients used water wheels to cut marble veneer. And yet prisons were not at all pretty – yet they were/ are works of art.

    I also thought of the walls of Jericho that were supposed to have been brought down by music. Vibrations can be strong and yet some of us create invisible walls.. Your roll got me thinking too!


      • The marble was thin for stone anyway about a 1/2 inch thick. They think the water wheel held pushed two sets of four blades each.

        Bit shy on time but I googled ‘ancient water wheel to cut marble and a bunch of stuff popped up including about and 8 minute u-tube video. Might be what I saw.
