Angel of Light

Leonie Wise - Angel of Light, Brompton Cemetery, London, UK

Even in the quiet of the cemetery (or perhaps BECAUSE of the quiet of the cemetery) time slows down to a slower pace.

The urge to walk slower, sit for a while, take a grave rubbing or two, or make up poems or songs in my head about the people who I discover remembered here, is great and must be obeyed.

I walk, and walk. The sun comes out and I see her on top of a large gravestone.

She is bowed in perpetual prayer… catching the light.
