Image for the poem Echo

Echo

Embedded in a mountain  
Stone walls the facade
Access,
a singular draw bridge
 
No external garden
No manicured lawns
No white picket fence
No welcome sign
 
Behold a fortress,
wrought iron strong hold
The arched portcullis
a defensive masterpiece 
 
Impervious wooden doors
Constructed of iron and wood
Visitors prohibited 
Secured  by  fetterlocks
 
Entry restricted
An invitation required 
The fortress of secrets
Open mysterious hours
 
Beyond the stone
Behind the gates
Dreams transpose reality
Tranquillity awaits
 
 Blood red roses
Elaborate flowers beds
Manicured perfection
Contour the entrance
 
The atrium it's heart 
Lush foliage
Vibrant green grass
Trees as old as time 
 
The emulsion of fragrances
The sweet smell of nectar
Hazardous 
Intentional design
 
A winding staircase
Lined in solid gold
Shimmers
Emulating the sun
 
Access prohibited 
Gentle whispers
Echo down the hall
"Climb"
 
Only the chosen enter
Involuntary surrender
Hypnotised
The echo whispers
"climb"
