Open #writephoto

Black and white
Light and shadow
Inviting footsteps
Forgotten dust playing
Caught between merry sunbeams
And the depths of ancient sorrow
Afraid of moving forward too fast
Too fearful to risk standing in one place
Conscious of every twisting corridor
The mind builds between the then and now
Imagined monsters lie in wait
Behind illusory walls
Dreams walk the labyrinth
Seeking fragile hopes
To light the way
Sleepers wake


For this week’s writephoto prompt

    A wonderful double etheree, Sue. You encapsulate everything that is wrong with that place and yet the fragile trace of what could be found there…

    Oh, Sue, I love your double etheree. It is beautiful! What lurks in the shadows is what I worry about. I’ll stay where the sunbeams light the darkness. ❤️🤗❤️
