A solid Symbol,
cross Aloft,
in stones and conCrete affirmation.
A cathedRal dome
hung high Over town
inviteS us
to come forth And worship,
bow dowN to pray
in here, where Christ the Lord
has been represenTed in architecture.


Author Notes:

This is a picture of the Cathedral of St. Paul in St. Paul, Minnesota. It is my church. When they replaced the copper dome with a new one, they put a time capsule in the new cross on the roof. My name and my wife’s signatures are in that cross.

This poem is a Joy Acrostic.
‘Joy’s Acrostic Variation’, was invented by our own, Joy Graham. The rules are: A main word or phrase must be evident down the page in a centered fashion. You may waver the main word or phrase in a shape poetry style, but it must be readable.
She recommends using a larger font and different color just for the main word or phrase so it stands out. Your lines may be spaced across the main word or phrase, using each letter in your lines like an acrostic. It is up to the poet if they want to use rhymes or meter or not.

This picture was taken by the author himself on October 20, 2012.
