Inspiration . . .

A cathedral is a place of worship. It is meant to draw you upward to heaven . . . to inspire a sense of awe through beauty and majesty. Every so often a sunset comes along which draws you up into it. The sky is ablaze with colors and power, as if God pulled back the curtain just to give you, and you alone, a glimpse of the eternal. The most powerful sunsets happen during late Fall and Winter. There is a window of just a few minutes when everything comes together, exactly between day and night . . . dark and light . . . when the magic quietly appears. It's here and then it's gone but it always leaves a mark on your soul

. . . Cathedral . . .

The evening sky begins to slow,
Heaven’s own transcendant show
intensely burning colors glow
ethereal silver light...

Brilliant blue, orange, gold,
a painter’s vision to behold,

this lonely fire the sun does hold,

receding to quiet darkness...
