Opalescent

Written by: Virginia Muller

Places of worship  aglow -
Stained glass windows 
are embellished 
as varying shades of  blues
golds, reds & greens
glisten like a noon-day sun 
reflecting oceanic waters
in mid-summer bliss

Colorful glass, 
mosaic decorative 
pictures adorn 
tables & walls
as Tiffany lamps
cast decorative 
shapes & light
across a room

Magical hues
bring mens'
souls nearer to
God

A beveling of-
of super-cooled
liquid, gas &
silica
transformed
by fire -
Creates
beautiful
opalescent rainbows
