Haiku: Stairways


Ah, Paris in the summertime! Thanks to One Single Impression for an inspiring prompt.


Yes, The Tower

Eschewing their lure
to reach the faraway top:
Elevator up.


Beckoning again,
we give in to its promise
of satisfaction.

Wow! Flying past the stairs is a delightful option. I hope that promise was fulfilled!

Hi Pat, wasn't that a nice thing to do, up, up and up. And it is up the easy way compared to climbing the stair (I've done both).
Thank you for posting your haiku about it, I've looked at haiku and had some thoughts but never pen to paper.

BTW, I have a YouTube video of it at night. It is very short. Check Jim1Jim1 either by Google or on YouTube search (if you'd like to do that).

This is more than you want to know.

I APOLOGIZE.

A guy, whom I DISLIKED very much, proposed to me on the Eiffel Tower. Since then I look at it and gag.

But otherwise, I'd love it. :)

There is such satisfaction to achieve something worked hard for. I too enjoy this aspect of life. Going back down has always been the hard part for me. . . seeing the ground so far away!
