Decaying Stairs

I can sense the stairway It goes on and on upwards The stairs are decaying Beyond, continue onwards I don’t know where they go As they stop before the top They bring an eerie feel Rustic looking as they stop There is moss that grows here Giving a feel of great awe I would sure walk this path But the path looks like it’s raw Ancient this path crumbles I can’t venture that much more Path has beauty inside Inside by its life and lore

    Enjoyed reading your mysterious work this morning..I can see the stairway on the north side in the shade with the moss and overgrowth of once beautiful shrubs..Thanks for stopping by my work..It was 29 or so here this morn..No snow but more cold tonight..This definitely was killing of the ragweed temperatures..I am glad that they are gone but the cold hurts..Sara
