Everything was in reverse, an alternate universe if you like, as you looked down at the night lights twinkling like millions of gold dust particles on a blanket of blue.
The glossy white banks flanking the pathway gleamed in the half light like uncut diamonds.
The view was magnificent.
There was just one tiny flaw.
It would take years to reach the bottom on foot, let alone return to the top, as due to cutbacks and a lack of the necessary skilled labour, a lift or escalator had been considered way too expensive, even for the Gods.
What a pity no-one thought of Express travel by Star Light.

About pensitivity101

I am a retired number cruncher with a vivid imagination and wacky sense of humour which extends to short stories and poetry. I love to cook and am a bit of a dog whisperer as I get on better with them than people sometimes! We have an elderly dog called Maggie who adopted us as a 7 week old pup in March 2005. From 2014 to 2017 'Home' was a 41 foot narrow boat where we made strong friendships both on and off the water. We were close to nature enjoying swan and duck families for neighbours, and it was a fascinating chapter in our lives. We now reside in a small bungalow on the Lincolnshire coast where we have forged new friendships and interests.
