Day 13, poem, Sturdy Pillars was inspired by pictures I took yesterday of the Roman Arch of Triumph in Cordoba, Spain.

Sturdy Pillars

Sturdy pillars rise,
Pierce sky, reaching for heaven.
Necks crane up in awe
To Roman Arch of Triumph,
Proud reminder, ‘We lived here.


Buildings inspire me, especially ancient ones which remind me of our collective past. Poetry inspired by these monuments is a tribute to the architects, designers, builders, workers, who built these magnificent constructions, which we are fortunate enough to visit, preserve and share as part of our cultural heritage.
