STAIRWAY TO HEAVEN


This morning's photo hunt theme is STEPS.

I have taken the liberty to interpret this as stairs. This is a staircase taken in a building in Edinburgh Scotland. My feeble mind does not recall which building exactly, however.
As you can see I am standing at the bottom of a spiral staircase looking up to the ceiling. I thought it was an interesting composition.



The Stairway To Heaven



The stairway to heaven
Lies way beyond my soul,
Far from my heart,
And out of my control.
As I pass each second,
Of every single day,
I take one step to travel,
This far and distant way.
The stairway to heaven
Leads me to a final goal,
When my earthly life's absorbed
In a blending of the whole.

This reminds me of the staircases in the antebellum homes of the south. Gorgeous! And the poem.. with all that has happened this week... brings tears.

It's a stunning photo! Perfect shot. I guess one needs extra energy to climb those flight of stairs. Thanks for sharing and visiting mine. Happy weekend!

What a magestic stair case. I'm sure the picture does not do it any justice. I love the poem too. Nice post!

UKZoe said...

I love the angle on it too, not just straight up the middle.

Mother of Invention said...

And yet my eyes have me going down them somehow...matbe because I'm tired and that would be easier!
Yeah where's Zepplin?!! One of my favourite songs from my youth!

This looks like Escher art. It's a picture you really have to study to see it.
