Declining the Crown

Declining the Crown

Surely, just the turrets alone must
take a goodly time to dust.
Not to mention dredging moats
and putting layers and layers of coats
of wax on armor lest it rusts.
And all those doorknobs? All those busts?
All in all, I think a castle
simply is not worth the hassle!


Fandango’s prompt for the day is “Castle.”

About lifelessons

My blog, which started out to be about overcoming grief, quickly grew into a blog about celebrating life. I post daily: poems, photographs, essays or stories. I've lived in countries all around the globe but have finally come to rest in Mexico, where I've lived since 2001. My books may be found on Amazon in Kindle and print format, my art in local Ajijic galleries. Hope to see you at my blog.
