THE LIGHT OVERPOWERED THE DARKNESS (St Pauls Cathedral)

Dressed in a collar of smoke
The unsleeping structure
Is a building of contradiction
Vulnerable, yet still imposing.

Blown apart
by a quarter-tonne bomb
Built-up again
To be a remembrance
Of soldiers who died.

Only whispers of its scars
The shrine once upturned
Now bathed in candlelight again.

In the abandonment of grief
They now sing hymns of
Survival and hope.

Where do shadows hide
When no light is cast?
When morning comes
May the light overpower
The darkness.
