The wall of the lodge

Pierced by no window
Brick by brick laid in courses
Atop the stairs, a chamber
Where men come 
To build better selves
A secret retained
Enlightenment gained

Poetics: If Walls Could Talk

  1. Love these responses! You’ve lead me to this:
    These walls are boundaries, keep some secrets in, innocuous little things, whose power is only in the secrecy. if you were told, you’d be like ‘thats it? what a gyp’ But like a dog that seeks its cage, our confines bring comfort, an illusion of safety, where our inner walls can come down, at least for a few. Ahhh… respite!

    oh there’s so much more here! Thanks Mich for this prompt. at first i wasn’t that impressed but then it began to unfold…
