Those steps have seen many feet!
the photo is facinating but it's the haiku that gives me chills (in a good way!)
Wonderful photo and 'ku.
your haiku is perfect for the well-worn pathway -- sets me to wondering about each who has passed that way
Wonderful photo and poem - interesting thinking about the anticipation of each person climbing those steps.

One can only imagine the many souls ascending these weathered steps in search of solace and even enlightenment.

Lovely haiku. Those steps are very inviting. Well done!
Very nice. Enjoyed the whole series you've written and posted.
B- nice take on the tree.Thank you, neasa and don for your warm comments.
Now this is weathered! I wonder how old the steps are?Good poem.
the young onesmount you in two stridesold temple stepsalthough the key to good haiku is to allude to something without naming it, like my favorite about achieving enlightenment:oh snailclimb Mount Fujibut slowly, slowly-Bashodecidedly not from the Renzai school of Zen!thus:gnarled old roots obscure the waymy paththough "old" is redundant, since we can clearly see thatfinally:just this waythe mendicate monkshave comenice site gz who is miguel? -rs
Thanks, Sandy. I too wonder how old...ask miguel - he took the pic in Nepal.rs- such lovely ku's you shared. The first one allows me to see those young ones moving in haste to capture enlightenment, much too fast for their own good, as Basho expresses. Miguel is a very good friend of mine, as you must know. ; )
