reverie: think of somewhere otherworldly u wish to be within, what is it like there?
An empty church. Stone, probably, with dark, dark wooden pews. Every piece of furniture has a carving or engraving, or some other decorative indulgence. Definitely a big window. Stained glass. I want it to be warm, so in the offering nooks there are candles, blankets, pillows, dense bunches of flowers, but it is colder in the center aisle. The ceiling is so high it must be an illusion - somehow it is both higher and lower than you think. The floor is marble, patterned, occasionally inscribed with brass words, names, quotes in unknown languages. There are many narrow wooden passageways and back rooms, and floors in winding halls that have been worn down to shallow, concave troughs by centuries of passing footsteps. There is a choir loft. It is empty, but there is a persistent, subsonic echo of the melodies sung there, a tune you can’t quite hear behind the silence.
