BATALHA MONASTERY III - ARCHES

vow of silence
a funny poem by Raj Arumugam


Kron joins the monastery;
he must stay in isolation
and is allowed to say 2 words
every three years


3 years pass
and Kron is brought before
the Elders
and he is allowed his 2 words
Cold room, he says


3 years later
again Kron is brought before
the Elders
and he is allowed his 2 words
Bad food, he says


3 years later
again Kron is brought before
the Elders
and he is allowed his 2 words
I quit, he says


Not surprising, say the Elders
All you have done since you came here is to complain

I think they are fantastic! Seems to me that to get the detail of stone work the light would have to be as is.

I never cease to be amazed at the amazing beauty and grandeur of these structures Antonio....

I had to force myself to look at the arches and not the windows where the light IMHO was too strong!
