To discover an icon painting course 

in a mountain town in Wales

was unexpected,

but as a lover of the unexpected 

I enrolled.

Tad, the Orthodox priest looked authentic

with his black robes

and long beard.

That was unexpected too.

There was no gold there

only slate

which was not suitable

so we made do with paint

and shiny foil.

Tad was pleased with the results

and congratulated us all.

We gave them to his church

as expected.
