Rose Windows

We must shine with hope, stained glass windows that shape light into icons, glow like lanterns borne before a procession. Who can bear hope back into the world but us.
~Marge Piercy

Gorgeous works of art...and so intricate (like the one in Speyer, Germany).

So beautiful. That third photo of the exterior of the window in Galicia is just as beautiful and intricate as the inside!

This post made me go back to my blog and search for my stained glass window poem - and I see you commented on it when I posted it!

Thanks for reminding me about your poem, Ruth! It's a good one to revisit (and revisit)!
