Surprise in the solitude of the cloister

In response  to the weekly Daily Post challenge:  Surprise

I don´t know if it’s the same for you, but when I visit a monastery where there are cloistered monks or nuns I always feel an enormous curiosity about what will be on the other side of the gate.

One imagines thousands of stories that have transpired intramural over the centuries, wrenching lives, murders, endless joys, eternal sufferings …

But they are only trips of the imagination, that probably never happened and that will be forgotten when leaving the convent.

However, this time something surprising happened. Just after taking this picture, a tiny nun, looking like just arrived from another century, from another life, from another world, … appeared on the other side of the gate.

It should not be more than 1.55 meters, stooped, probably with the vertebrae crushed by the years. With many wrinkles, but with a clean, immaculate skin.

He stopped for a moment, turned to us, smiled, and continued on his way until he was lost by one of the doors.

Surprise from another world?
