Koschei’s Castle

Koschei's Castle by Photography Fables.

It emerged from the mist

Dark and ancient as the Deathless One

Black battlements blocking out the sun

Stone monsters on every rampart

Sentinels of a bygone era

A jagged portcullis hung above the drawbridge

ready to snap shut like hungry jaws

Welcome to the belly of the beast

Where princesses were kept hostage

For the whims of an immortal

Hear their woes echo

In bricks worn by time

Leave behind this monument to madness

Seek safer climbs

Live to tell the tale
