One Word Sunday: Arch

Debbie’s One Word for this Sunday, is ‘Arch’, which immediately brought to mind our visit to Spain and Morocco where arches are a very common architectural feature.

There are many arches inside the beautiful Cathedral of Cordoba
Beautiful arches also abound at the Alcรกzar of Seville
More arches at the entrance to the Royal Palace of Fez in Morocco.

  2. I wish I had Tennyson at my fingertips, Ad, These days a smart phone is more common when traveling. ๐Ÿ™‚ ๐Ÿ™‚ Lovely, lovely Mezquita! And the gardens. Places to dream… The Arabs have made arches their own. Have a lovely week, hon!

  3. Sylvia – arches are my most favourite symbol, one that has resonated in me since a young child. It is as if we move between realitieswhen stepping through an archway. We experience transitions many times in life – we walk through archways. A beautiful and life-affirming post. Thank you.

    โ€œI am a part of all that I have met;
    Yet all experience is an arch wherethro’
    Gleams that untravell’d world whose margin fades
    For ever and forever when I move.
    How dull it is to pause, to make an end,
    To rust unburnish’d, not to shine in use! โ€œ

    Ulysses by Alfred, Lord Tennyson

    • Thanks so much, dear Rebecca. I’m so happy that you enjoyed seeing these beautiful arches. Yes, arches for me are thresholds through which one can pass often without opening a door. They also act as frames for what lies beyond, beckoning one through to enjoy the delights, as the one at the Real Alcazar of Seville does. Enjoy the rest of your Sunday. Hugs to you. xx

  4. Prachtige bogen veel afkomstig van de Moren maar als ik aan bogen denk gaan mij gedachten naar mijn reis in Amerika met natuurlijke bogen uitgesleten in de rotsen in natuurgebieden.
