Building Cathedrals

They say they have built a Cathedral,
ones who have set only a few stones or glazed but a single glass.
or spent only two seasons on that which took one hundred years to build.

How many cathedrals have we built by lending just a helping hand
or spending a few moments to say an encouraging word,
To someone thought building a lessor cause.

And why is that not as grandiose ?

  3. Yes, why?
    It should be more so!
    Excellent poem and question, E!!!
    I think people HAVE to take their religion into the marketplace and streets…helping, giving, being kind, etc. If not, then what is the purpose of religion?! Just to be kept inside the cathedral or church?!
    HUGS and Happy MoanDay! May all your moaning be good moaning! 🙂
