On the steps

Knocking on
heavens door and
being answered
by an echo.

the willing
wait on
the steps –

hoping to
be kept.

    I keep reading these lines, watching how they resonate and resound against one another. In the first stanza, you give me this tremendous sense of loneliness, of abandonment. But. What of the others, waiting on the steps?

    I’ll be thinking on this one a while.

    1. Ahhh… that is quite the take Lainie, loneliness in the form of the echo perhaps?

      The others on the steps… were those waiting for the answer, their redemption was won in the form of their patience.

      Now you have me ruminating on the element of loneliness.

      Thanks for the echo, no pun intended?
