Sue Snow Steps

In response to Sue Vincent’s photo prompt – The Stairway



(In the style of Sufi poetry)


Frozen Steps


Examine frozen

Find your rhythm

In the tapping of ice crystals

With  your most foolish foot

Slide forward the sole

And feel the danger

In the deadly realm where

Blood and pain meet

And then

Disregard them all

In noble purpose

And, stripping fear back

To where no fall rules

Descend to love
