Picture of the Day -“The Ladder”

It leaned on a tree

And beckoned

Climb!

But I am not a child, I said aloud

To nobody in particular.

Still, as I sat on a nearby bench

It said, “Come on, scaredy-pants!”

Climb!

I pulled up the hood of my purple sweatshirt

And did as the ladder asked!

If only in my mind.

(I find I am not the risk-taker I once was, after all!)
