shadow & light …

 

shadow and light,

a fan of steps,

a stone vertebrae,

spiralling towards the sky

or plunging to earth.

spill of indigo, ochre, charcoal,

a symphony of grace.

steps worn smooth by the tread of centuries;

emerging into the sunshine of another day

or the dark chamber of another night.
