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
