Word Prompt: Labyrinth

Shrubs stretch tall, looming

A wall of interlocked limbs

No calls of rover to let me in

The ceiling of stars inching closer

Glass marbles shuffle the ground

Should I slip and fall

I shall plummet through open holes

Never wake up, or this will be real

Sugar skull caves with spiraling stairs

Winding, winding, and winding down

To fires and lapping waves

Stirred by tornado dances

Desert boll dustings

Nettled brush leering to feel skin

I stumble through the frosty breath

The monster who exhales within

Palatial turrets guarding this maze

From where her weary few escape

The enigma of our infinite chase.


About 365 Things to Write About

I'm inspired by almost anything and everything creative - nature, architecture, art, words, music...I like to roam along streets, through foreign countries, and within my mind where the world is full of endless possibilities. I dream of being an idealist, but I've experienced too many harsh realities for that wish to ever be true. Therefore, I look for the hope and the good in small nuances, and I express my thoughts and feelings about the world around me on pages and canvases whenever I can.
