A Door of Promise

Door knob

An impulse purchase

or inspired accumulation

this door of many tales.

Its presence in our home

opened portals of imagination

yet somehow stanched the flow

Of creativity.  We reached into

ourselves and contemplated

the deeper possibilities doors

Open us to.  Doors open to us

when we are receptively in

touch with the metaphysical

History spinning within the

woodgrain, the crackled finish,

and the evidence of the door

Being somewhat… unhinged.

Unhinged

Poetics: Open a new door with me

  1. Oh my — tipping my morning cup to you here! How I love
    “History spinning within the
    woodgrain, the crackled finish,
    and the evidence of the door
    Being somewhat… unhinged.”
    Am especially smiling at the idea of the door and those who use it being slightly unhinged! 🙂 Good one!
    Great use of the prompt!

  2. Ah! A door of many tales. I hae this image of sitting around a campfire listening to the door tell the stories. (Of course, a campfire and a wooden door – could be a conflict of interests there…) Love this poem!
