Stories from my travels around the world


Around The Great Lakes, Sweden


Vadstena Kloster
The wonders of light, Vadstena Kloster

The long hallway
Doors on either side
And then there is that light
Almost blinding the eye
And drawing you to the end

Sounds and images in my head
I can just imagine them here
The black dresses
The hollow echo
A door closes
Their silent whispers
And their ongoing prayers

This is a place where history was made
Where history feels so present
It's all gone now
But the light is still here
And the feeling
Vadstena Convent
So peaceful
