Unknown Steps


Narrow slits
dark divide
Evil eyes
peer the pass
Sinister stones
snare the wary

Noble hearts
enter face first
Golden fences
clear the way
Gleaming doors
ajar to wisdom

  1. Your words and the photo brought to mind the time the buildings were constructed – narrow streets to limit the size of invading forces making it easier to defend against them, curved to prevent the enemy from seeing the size of the defending armies as they approach. Lovely! 🙂


  2. Great photo … I love those narrow streets and alleys. In Stockholm there are oodles of them in the Old City.

    This picture came out very well in b/w [or is there a little bit of sepia?], and your words went very well with it.


    • Thanks! 🙂 I can’t resist those narrow streets. They always make me wonder who has traveled them .

      It is a black and white shot, but I did adjust the tint a little to enhance the shading.
