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

One thought on “OLWG#162- The Ancient Gallery

  1. Or you can put all the things you don’t want to see in one museum, so maybe you won’t forget all the misery…. But the big question is has anyone learned anything. We’ve still got acting kings… ladies waiting for their fair share and maybe one can label it new but there’s a primeval virus lurking…

    I think I would like to be friends with a dragon. I’ve read all the Pern books…(sci fi fantasy) ~ But even then not one place is perfect since human emotions ride roller coasters as quickly as politicians change their views and break their promises …
