Gothic [Free Verse]

The gothic cathedral is dark --

unilluminated, but for the
flickering orange flames
of votive candles,

and the weak winter light
of a gloomy December day
that warms the panels
of stained glass.

A pew creaks. 
A tiny movement makes 
a giant sound, owing to 
the stony acoustics.

The pew is creaking from the  
restless fidgeting of the 
church's sole occupant.
