Steps

IMG_0566

Steps stretch high in the air

Two dragon feet waot at the bottom

Covered in gold, twinkle in the light

I must raise the energy to tackle the steps

Each one taken slowly in the midday sun

People stop, take breath, look upwards

I fill my lungs with air

Steadily move forwards

My legs ache, my heart beats rapidly

The end is in sight

The temple looks down on me

The dragons face smiles

Encrusted in tiny golden mirrors

Brightly coloured glass

Small ceramic tiles

They capture the sun

Reflecting the light, Shining brightly

I look down the steps,

Such a long distance

And wonder, will it be MacDonald’s for tea?

Angry wind

You howl around the house
Bending branches
Thrashing against the window
What do you want?
So Desperate to engage with me
I’m non responsive
You Force the glass, it shakes
You Rattle the doors
You roar and moan
I don’t understand you
Your fury is forceful
I am quiet
I stop and listen
I hear your screams, your pain
Your howling drops to a breeze
You whisper, I see you now
You are calm again
The world is still once more
