There is a rapture on the lonely shore;
There is society, where none intrudes.
By the deep sea, and music in its roar:
I love not man the less, but Nature more...

-Lord Byron

Split's Bell Tower

One hundred and seventy steps to the top of Split's Bell Tower.

Half of which are stone, turning to rickety metal,

shaking with the slightest of ocean breezes.
Acrophobia seizes me temporarily, my grip on the small handrail tightens.

Slow breathes, in deep, exhale slowly.

One foot in front of the other as I rise above the city buildings

to clear blue ocean views and clouds topping distant mountains ranges.
I climb this stairway to heaven to the serenity above.
