Hi Anne-Lise, this is a wonderful Senryu you have placed before us. I am beginning to like these shorter forms more and more. Such sadness in the words you lay before us. You at your best Anne-Lise, writing from the heart. What memories that old church must have stored. An excellent Senryu. This one goes into my faves. Hugs....Mike. XX

You have beautifully painted a gloomy picture of many small chapels which perhaps need more attention and care everywhere in the world. Thank you once again dear friend for your kind visit on my recent poem. Love and best wishes always...Ravindra K Kapoor

A chapel is supposed to transmit warmth and a welcoming atmosphere. I hope it soon gets restored, Anne-Lise! Your words make me feel sad and sorry for it. Hugs // paul

This is a masterful write, such a grand poem Anne-Lise! I have 2 hrs to use the computer each day now! I'll be using it to go on the Soup this weekend but on Monday I'll have to get back to school so I'll be using it for that and Emma will have to get on to read and write for me! She is awesome!! This is such a spectacular Senryu my friend! Wow, what a lovely piece, sad in its intricacy! I really loved reading this stunning poem this morning, what a fantastic piece! Great Work!!

Nice one Sunshine. It reminds me of a little chapel in open fields in an area of New Hampshire.
