Canal of Crystal Caves

Monday, March 07, 2011

This ship navigated through crystals into caves
lined with luminous lighted candles
into ballrooms cleared of people parading, serenading, speaking.

Only empty shells of spaces remain where once proud cultures
cavorted, dressed in splendrous robes of purple and mahogany.

Crystal chandeliers, glinting, winking, reflecting light,...
Vacated.
Waiting.
