Haunted by silence

Through planned, positioned trees,
round the next bend,
we stumbled upon the ruins,
still and lifeless, shrouded in mist….

On, past the frugal remains of a kitchen
and a refectory carpeted in grass,
a chapel, roofless
and still haunted by silence.

Fountains Abbey ~ Gill Renard

Another misty Autumn evening walk and Roche Abbey becomes even more atmospheric

  2. Someone else already wrote this in a comment but my first thought was “very atmospheric.” I like the idea of a refectory carpeted in grass.
