Ascent…#OctPoWriMo 2018

spiral staircase
Photo by Johannes Plenio on


Strutted and sturdy

From ground to sky

Often missed

By the mere passer-by

A stairway ascending

To the heavens above

Just steps and handrails

All made with love

Many a foot

Have tread on these treads

All shapes and sizes

Now living, not dead

For dead is a place

That was left in the world

When called up by Him

Through clouds that unfurl

This is the place

We were told about

Only one way in

And you’ll never want out
