Remember to Look Up…

St Vitus

St Vitus Cathedral of Prague

When church bells are ringing,
Calling to pray under intricate mosaics,
Look up with your soul resurrecting.

When ocean waves are raging,
Devouring porous seconds of sand,
Look up with your eyes dancing in blue.

When the full moon wades in the skies,
Throwing thin blankets through window panes,
Look up with your hands touching the silk.

When sand hill cranes call from afar,
Their elegant ballet on updraft thermals,
Look up with your fearless heart soaring.

When rain travels down vertical rivers,
On tree stems hushing growth lullabies,
Look up with your ears catching the pureness.

When apple blossoms are snowing down,
Quietly like newborn’s timeless breath,
Look up with your cheeks caressed by petals.

And when there is no rain, no blossoms, no cranes
Not the moon in view and no bells tolling, still,
This very, magical moment, remember to look up…


St Vitus2 St Vitus3St Vitus7 St Vitus4 St Vitus5The Metropolitan Cathedral of Saints Vitus, Wenceslaus and Adalbert is a Roman Catholic metropolitan cathedral in Prague, the seat of the Archbishop of Prague. Up to 1997, the cathedral was dedicated only to Saint Vitus, and is still commonly named only as St. Vitus Cathedral. This cathedral is an excellent example of Gothic architecture and is the biggest and most important church in Czech Republic. It is breathtaking, expansive and graceful. Located within Prague Castle and containing the tombs of many Bohemian kings and Holy Roman Emperors, the cathedral is under the ownership of the Czech government as part of the Prague Castle complex.

      Thank you. Yes, I did post for those who celebrate Easter maybe in church, and those who celebrate spring in the wild, and those who just celebrate every breath, and all of the above. 🙂 Thank you for visiting and your words.
