Into The Distance - Poem by Daniel Richards

Into the distance,
I see a stair case ascending to the clouds
Each tread covered in silver dust,
The nosing encrusted with diamonds surround
Reaching ever upwards to the star light above
Winding to dizzy heights
A hand rail appears from out of the mist a
Golden polygon snaking its way to the top
Grips me as I did it,
Green vine saplings growing fast, as I climb ever higher into the enchanting night
Twisted dreams of fantasy infused with fright
Do I wish to escape such a beautiful delicate delight?
I can’t keep my mind from the circling skies and help but
Wonder why me and an earthbound misfit deserves to climb
The steps of soaring heights
With each passing moment I feel my consciousness rise
As I glanced down with my watering eye, I see upon the clouds my shadow fly
As I climb higher flowering peyote plants adorn the trim
Its seems its sole intentions is to teach the meaning of life
Ever higher I see the globe and the misty surround, its halo
Among the planets I find we are all and one there’s a vapour trail
Leading the last of the climb co loured purple and blue
Walking in space I find I escape the chains of life not immortal but still dead
I see straight before me mars and its reds
Jupiter’s swings by its enormous and my ego is finally quelled
Insignificant I may feel but somewhere inside I no theirs a space I fill
A place for me a place for you all
Blistering starlight fills my sights galaxies and galaxies as far as can be
And I can’t help but think into that distance I’m staring back at me
Surrounded by darkness but infused with light
My steps take me ever forwarded to the heat of the sun
A doorway is opening is this where it all begun
Mysteries of the universe will unfurl for me,
My heart is full and hears a tone
The steps are behind me but I fell I found finally my way home
