stairways

looking up, i see
a journey toward heaven
one step at a timeover timeworn stairs
sea of humanity flows
longing for the view

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

one single impression

You live in a beautiful part of the world. I didn't want to leave!

There are some incredible and excellent bloggers in NC. I'm happy to know that!

God bless, and thanks for stopping by.

This is a fitting poem for just a lot of that sea! The pictures fit nicely, just up and up.
Thank you for reading my little poem, I had to post it.

the beautiful spiraling stairways also have a circular suggestion of eternity in your climb to glimpse heaven. Beautiful words and beautiful photographs.
