Crimson’s Creative Challenge #180 #The oft unseen beauty in architecture

It’s taken a while but now I realise

that instead of walking with my eyes

on the paving stones, firmly set down

closing ears and mind to the traffic sounds

that if I’m after a pleasant surprise

instead I should raise them to the skies

to see battlements, arches, slit windows

how many arrows had been fired from those

well although actually if that’s not true

I can still imagine tales of derring-do

as I meander around doing my chores

smiling at the memory of tales of yore.

  1. Love this. But neither do I know how many arrows have been fired from this, but I’m sure there’s been some 🙂
