123/366 - Mystic's Theme - Stairs

2012.05.02
pixel
A monstrous quarry near my home. Many years of digging have created a huge staircase in the rocky deposit. It still operates today.

Lesson Learned: Taking "one step at a time" sometimes means a thousand mini steps must be taken - that add up to just one step.

Stepping Back

Staring down
That hole - so deep
Waiting for something -
Anything to rise - up

But it does not – today…
Only stays - there
Deep and below
Buried – maybe worse…

Emptied – perhaps…
Mined and exhausted.
Better to step back –
Let it go – let it be…

It will be – just
A nothing day – this day
Tomorrow – maybe - not…
Empty again. Time…time.

Annbramwell Do trucks use the steps to get into the pit to retrieve the stone, I have seen an open cast mine in South Africa where the 170 ton dump trucks look like dinky toys... this has to be the biggest set of stairs in this weeks mystic theme!

"Lesson Learned: Taking "one step at a time" sometimes means a thousand mini steps must be taken - that add up to just one step."
Love this quote, now I have to find the perfect set of stairs to match it with. Very Power Filled words.
Wonderful capture!

djnana The barded wire in the foreground really makes the shot, Dan! We have quarries where we live, too - most of the holes are filled with water now.
