Fascination: Spiral Staircases…

Stuck on the Stair Case

What heavenly portals we enter…

I felt I was climbing up a spiral staircase,
my life circling around, around, upward,
then I found myself on a landing,
stuck on a treadmill that kept me level there,
apart from my progress…

then a light shone from above,
a pale blue heavenly light…and I looked up,
found myself lifting my foot, up, up, to the next step,
up until I could continue the
climb.

Julie Harris and Richard Johnson in The Haunting (1963, dir. Robert Wise).
