Written for: my response to the prompt: What do you See?


Luke’s transgressions are no longer tolerated by the Guardians of Light.
Banishing Luke from the World of Light they send him to the Underworld of Darkness.

Unwilling to accept his transgressions
The Underworld’s demons torment him
Images of his past haunt him
Intensifying darkness
Soften his resistance
Faraway above
Crumbling staircase
Golden light

Luke trembles with fear. He is confused about seeing the light and staircase. A moment ago it was total darkness everywhere.

Consciously ascending towards the light
Each step behind him crumbles away
Aware of symbolic message
Indicating steps forward
After a great distance
Portal on landing
Light Guardian
Open wide
