Locked Away

This poem of mine has been published in the Winter 2013 edition of WestWard Quarterly.  It will not be available online until 2014 – so with the editor’s approval, I’m posting it here:

Locked Away

Stone-paved cloister
Sackcloth-draped forms
Women in love

Light, slow footsteps
Long, lit tapers
Jesus, our Spouse

All hidden, save
Pure hands, faces
Hearts keep vigil

Moonlight filters
Through white curtains
Breathless, I stare

Crisp autumn air
Hovers above
Woolen blankets

I can’t quite remember
But I know
This was centuries ago
