Staircase in Capri

Lisa Cox

There is magic
In painting a white
Stone staircase
White on white
With a shadow
On one side
Creating depth
Using only shades
Of white
Creating upward
Depth to tread
Sunlight falling
On white stairs
Shadow falling
On white stairs
Still white
Within the shadow
The stone’s texture
The heat of the sun
The coolness of the shadow
The out of breathness
At the top of the stairs
All done in white
Only stairs
A whole universe
From bottom to top
