Staircases And More

Poem By sreelekha premjit

staircases should be long
but wide
with ample space for feet, thought, leisure and some work in between
allowing movement of many at a time
with no running into one another
each at his own pace
each to his destination
counting the steps
or skipping them at times
in solitude or in company
in joy or sorrow
aimfully or aimlessly
ambling or rushing
(even struggles are enjoyable) .
