THE PEDESTAL

What a jaunty step it is
that climbs
the lofty steps
of a glinting pedestal.
What lofty dreams swirl
around the citadel
like silver lined clouds
gathered by the winds of success.
With what passion
and tenacious intensity
the will clings
to its precarious edges.
And with what rapidity
the silver lining darkens,
threatening storm
and a slippery slope
all the way down.
