Interesting read. I enjoyed the humor and how the vivid images bring the poem to life.

I got a strong sense of escape or perhaps a waiting to transcend, which for me, made the photo of the winding staircase very poignant -- were we circling up or winding down... I was engaged by this work...


Julie Jordan Scott

Thank you, CR. I should stop apologizing for it.

Rob, engagement means a lot to me. THANK YOU for your comment....and yes, on the xanthic winding staircase.. now that you mention it, the metaphor goes even deeper.


Love these lines:

Typewriter scribing
Pound the key destruction
Pinky finger still held high

It's almost a foreshadowing of the spot of tea.

Yes, engaging and spirited poem and a wonderful staircase. The poem and the staircase make me want to run up and down—with a cup of tea held aloft.


Love the winding feel of this Julie!

Julie, This was a bit of a ride, I loved it! Beautiful picture, too. I want those stairs, and the building that goes with them!

hahahaha -- You and I must know the same "prince." But, a bit of Xanax, and he turned tolerable. Fun poem, Julie! Thanks.

Ta-da! Yes Julie, I love this poem. Just that perfect imperfect slight step to the right or left bringing the surreal into home. I can feel the brush strokes on the canvas too. Engaging, yes it is!

And Shambhala was just on TV tonight, but I fell asleep before finding out where! (Late, and there goes my sense of humor.) (Which your poem also invokes.) Yes, don't apologize. Good poem Julie!


Don't believe I've ever run across doofus in a poem. Glad to see it. good word.

Ya gotta love a poem that announces itself with a flourish of trumpets


nice one Julie.....thanks for sharing your words
