circle of stairs

 

Do we stairs go up?

or do we go down?

In truth we do neither.

It is you who must travel,

and it is you who must

comprehend that which

falling apples sing.

    What a conundrum! It’s daunting being sent off into the unknown… I think I need a ‘falling apple’ dictionary too. This is more like a quest! Would you be so merciful, sir…as to write us a pathway to enlightenment?

    It is necessary to determine early those who conform to our thinking. This will be translated as potential support from them in future episodes! Very true Paul!

    Such power even in the brevity of your verse!💖 I love the idea of stairs being neutral and the decision depending upon us. Beautifully executed.💖

    I was the falling apple, falling down an up escalator, a long one, in the London Subway (Tube) walkways. I agree, it is not the stairs that move (go up), it is we. Well, my escalator had the treads moving up even though I was falling down.
