That was a  fine image I got from a Brainpickings read. Tried it in today’s Poem A Day. Later I work on it to yield a much more fruitful metaphor.

Lost word is a supplementary image. Like the word that did not come when it should have.

The rope on the  wooden staircases such as you still come across in old houses is a favorite. The grime on the rope from several hands holding represents the  layers of people climbing up and down.

Layers of people gives me an interesting image. I will work on it later.
