Suspended Souls

Unfinished church
home to homeless souls.

Emptiness
infests porous stone.

Spirits drift through arches,
windowless frames

seek solace in open spaces,
await blessing’s incantation

drifting . . .
caught in man’s indeterminate pause.


Photos of the Unfinished Church on a hill top in St. George’s, Bermuda. Gothic architecture, started in 1874. Funding problems and disagreement in the parish suspended construction in 1897. A 1926 hurricane destroyed the roof and much of the construction. The ruins are a protected site in St George’s, a UNESCO world Heritage Site.
