perched far above
a stairway in the night
Ghostly light outshines
a mantle of ancient shadows
that cascades across the stone
A faint voice calls from the temple
adrift, swallowed in the crashing waves,
and echoing footsteps sounding from each step

For the giveaway, I’m not quite sure where it wants me to make a comment as it links me to a huge page. “Leave a comment on the blog by telling us your favourite “terrible myth or legend”
I don’t really have a favourite, but one of my favourites is the Loch Ness Monster.
This is the right blog to comment on for the giveaway, and as long as you clicked the entries on the Rafflecopter widget you should be fine. The Loch Ness Monster is one of my favourites as well.
