he only haunts in daylight

(this is the second of a series of poems inspired by flints in a wall of Norwich Cathedral)

Mid-day shadow reveals
a ghostly monk within the wall.
He only haunts in daylight.
The flint sings its un-plain song
as the ghost slowly moves
with the passing of the sun.
As dusk falls he goes to rest
in the homogenising dark.
