Haikus for an Empty Church

Amado L. Picardal



Gothic edifice,

spires reaching up to the sky,

inside it's empty.


Gilt tabernacle

marble columns and flooring,

dusty wooden pews.


It's dark and quiet

I will ring the bell again,

it is getting late.


How long must I wait?

Must I ring the bell again?

It is getting late. 


Why do they not come?

I've spent my whole ministry

just to build this church.
