Church of Ice

A glassy sea of crystalline degrees sustain a mass of icebergs in its pews that lift their icy eyes in melting pleas to wrest the dying of their waning hues. A stanza from my poem, Obscure Land of Lights Written on 5/21/2019

I loved "The Church of Ice" then (June 3 comment), and Gregory has anointed it as one of the highest winners in the contest, a true honor, as we all realize that he sets the bar high and possesses judgment that is true. Congratulations, Laura! :) gw
