Stairway to heaven

"Not hearing much of what we say,
Take what the god has given:
Through like waves breaking it may be
Or like a changed familiar tree,
Or like a stairway to the sea
Where down the blind are driven"
-Edwin Arlington Robinson

I love stairways. Especially old ones. I hold this romantic notion that they may lead to someplace of mystery, secret rooms or even enchantment. This stairway leads down to Pismo Beach which is an enchanting beach.

I love stairways too, but not going up them!

Wev, thanks for the kind words. Ms. Jones, it depends where the stairs lead to that makes the climb worth the effort.

I wouldn't be able to resiste seeing where it lead.

Interesting, very interesting, I know lots of people love bridges, as I do. But, I thought I was the only one loving stairways, indoors or outdoors, upstairs or downstairs, old or new, doesn't matter they are lovely!
