Stone Stairs

Stone Stairs

A Poem by JD Jessop
"

Found some well built, solid stone stairs that led up through the woods to where a mansion must have been in the Ghost town of Mogollon, New Mexico. I explored the place and left with only questions.

"

Stone Stairs

Only Stone Stairs

Everyone’s gone

Not even a home

Pine needle lawn

Ghost Mogollon

Vanished and gone

Stone Stairs Remain

Time wanders on

 

Who built the stairs?

What was their song?

Where are they now?

Why are they gone?

Sad thing not knowing

Something went wrong

Stone Stairs remain

Time wanders on……………..

I often find myself thinking the same things... How the universe rotated several years ago and such, what occurred? I revel in reading this piece.

Thank you for your review
Love the feel of this piece JD. It's hard not to visit ruins and get caught up in the ghosts of those that once inhabited these places. It's fun to imagine their comings and goings.
Really enjoyed this one!

;) Your welcome my friend .
And the stairs seem to climb from nothing to nothing...

That's what happens when time leaves a place behind.
