OLWG#162- The Ancient Gallery

This piece was written for OLWG#162



Paintings of Pharaohs
Statues of Kings
Bas Relief images of heroes and queens
Carvings of battles,
Commandments and creeds
Depictions of hunts – elephants and steeds

Ladies in waiting
Knights strong and brave
Sun Gods and dragons
Who live in a cave
Ships and explorers,
Now long in their graves

Forests primeval
Seashores and moor
To enter the gallery
Pass through a steel door
That protects all the relics and bones kept inside
You can run from your past but you never can hide


The prompts were:

  1. the ancient gallery
  2. When life and dreams collide
  3. the busker’s patter
