Haiku Heights 208...Red


St Columba's-by-the-Castle, Royal Mile, Edinburgh, Scotland



The red door beckons

All are welcome to enter

Faith so colorful



The prompt this week from Haiku Heights immediately reminded me of this photograph I took awhile back.  St Columba's is at the top of the Royal Mile, which ends at Edinburgh Castle.  I've always loved this red door; the larger front door, around the corner to the left, is bright turquoise.  Click on the picture to read the signage posted on either side.  You've just gotta smile at a church with such a sense of humor...

If you can't read the signs...

Left: Many folks want to serve God but only as advisors
Right:  When you get to your wit's end, you'll find God lives there

  1. "Fath so colorful" INcredibly imaginative interpretation of the prompt. The picture and haiku are perfect together
