A spiral staircase from the forest floor
like an Escher leading everywhere and nowhere
all at once.


The back porch stairs
lead to the whole
of the wild woods and world.

Star Dust Stairs

Fairies’ feet make no footprints
in the star dust on the stairs
as they make their way to the heavens.

Fallen Leaf

When the first colorful leaf
lands on the stairs
Fall has arrived.
