The Disappointed of Blue Church Cemetery
For the answer we search
O ancient blue church
Where is the heaven you said
Would be ours when dead?
Even old reverend wants to know
Where did damn paradise go?
See our gravestones bitterly lean
At your indifferent door we convene
Tricia Marcella Cimera
This poem was written for the surprise challenge, ekphrastic poetry on Canadian art.
Tricia Marcella Cimera will forever be an obsessed reader and lover of words. Look for her work in these diverse places: Buddhist Poetry Review, The Ekphrastic Review, Foliate Oak, Fox Adoption, Hedgerow, I Am Not A Silent Poet, Mad Swirl, Silver Birch Press, Stepping Stones, Yellow Chair Review, and elsewhere. She has a micro collection of water-themed poems called THE SEA AND A RIVER on the Origami Poems Project website. Tricia believes there’s no place like her own backyard and has traveled the world (including Graceland). She lives with her husband and family of animals in Illinois / in a town called St. Charles / by a river named Fox.
