Lux Nova
				Lux Nova
			(after Notre Dame)

The light at Suger's
	 St. Denis
precursor for mighty Notre Dame
Paints both floors in color.

	Tracery and mullions 
A story in late winter's light

by alternate fickle finger of fate,
the plus side being said vehicle
parked here in public Salem's lot,

Hardships Butter
by Michaelw1two
