I wondered what lurked in the landing’s shadows.
I listened to the creak of breathing wood
and the wash of my imagination’s shallows.
I whispered to the upstairs ghosts
mollifying volleys of hallos
and showers of secrets and prayers –
just making sure they stayed upstairs.

This Thursday Susie is inspiring us to write new poems about stairways with inspiration from Led Zeppelin, some very nice images and quotes.
