poetry and prose about place

green flame

with 4 comments

In the afternoon, on a sunny day, the light from the stained glass window in our stairwell finds a place on the wall of our living room. For a few moments, blues, reds and greens create a gorgeous splash of colour. Yesterday afternoon, the spotlight settled behind the curtained door to the library. And a green flame shimmered among the folds of fabric, a reminder of the greenery slumbering out in the yard, beneath the snow.

  2. What a lovely verbal image! It must be intriguing to have stained glass giving up patterns and colours that depend upon the season for the tones and locations.

    • Hi Carol. It is a simple window but it sends colour everywhere just as the evening sun is setting. Usually the staircase shows the most colour, but it sneaks into various corners! Jane
