I spent a hot Sunday morning wandering around Malaga.
First stop – the main plaza in the old town
Where there was a wonderful photo exhibition by Salgado.
Then a quick stop at Cafe Central with its famous mosaic.
The empty glass of coffee sums up how I feel (horror vacui)!
My eye was drawn to the symmetry of the cloth
Protecting the main shopping street and old buildings from the sun.
Malaga Cathedral attracts a lot of visitors
With its fine architecture.
I was more fascinated by the neglected rear of the cathedral,
Where hundreds of cobwebs caught bird feathers
From the pigeons who live there.

Some people say that Paris is the most romantic city in the world.
It could be because of the magnificent views of old buildings;
Or the romantic bridges criss-crossing the Seine.
Whatever the reason, the bridges of Paris are famous
For their hundreds of love locks —
Most with the names of couples written on them
To signify eternal love.
One of the most famous bridges with locks is very near Notre Dame Cathedral.
It’s been standing for at least 800 years — a testament of love and faith —
And it makes the loves and losses of our lives
Seems like the brief and passing beauty of a candle flame.

Nature is a cathedral
And when the sun shines through the iced trees
They are frosted stained glass windows.
The grandeur of these spires
Never fails to amaze
And the dancing light of winter
Waltzes its way into the soul.

A rock pile ceases to be a rock pile the moment a single man contemplates it, bearing within him the image of a cathedral.
