The idea behind this short novel is a dream that I had. A dream about a mansion, a beautiful and very surreal mansion, almost like a little castle. Then I started concentrating on trying to dream about that, and this story about a woman grew. A woman watching another woman though the window of The Mansion where she is in the early morning light. That became the foundation of this novel. I then tried my best to keep dreaming, and it worked up to one point. But after a while I could not concentrate so I used my waked imagination instead to write what was left. And what was left was about 4/5, if not more.

Abandoned ChapelThe parish waits now,
the loneliness of corners
crawling outward on walls--
chipped away by the wind,
and held together
by silk spindles;
cobwebs align them like the membranes of memories,
the cut of a jewel in an broken window
against the sun
where beads of rain
gather in a mesh of strands
a new Mosaic
against the backdrop of a cemetery;
My eyes seek out the sermon
in close proximity,
paint no distance
between headstone and cloud;
elegies topple each other
in their climb to heaven
as light trickles
over the shade,
breathes a new glow over snuffed candles.
I feel the weight in these empty rows,
how a breath couldn't cease to be breath
in the midst of prayer.
