For this week's Six word Friday, the word Adrienne at Memory Art was setting us was- 'Top' - a little stumped I started flicking through my recent images and found these ones- At the top of Angkor Wat!
At the top of Angkor Wat,
tourists looking like ants scurrying,
in and out of the ruins.
The steep climb has to be done
to appreciate the size of it
a vast, rambling, mass of stone.
And as they wander aimlessly around
they try to get a feel
of what life was like then,
When the stone walls were gilded,
When courtiers danced and sang
and highly decorated elephants solemnly marched.
Once it was a temple of reverence,
A palace, city, way of life
now its just one more place
to tick off the bucket list!
Even so, I still loved it!
