Closed/Open

Windows and doors

Are metaphors—

But also real

Gateways.

So: are Yours?photoHow open to change?

How closed in fear?

Do you throw them wide

When a friend

Comes near?photoYou can bar the way

And lock out

All storms—

But have you

Barred Chance in all

Its forms?photoAre your windows sealed

To stop the rain

So tightly that

No light can gainphotoEntry anymore?

Is your door of steel

Holding off

New joys

For fear you’d feel?photoThrow open the sash!

Swing wide the door!

Adventure is what

This life is for.photo

  1. A wonderful message, Kathryn, and I love the images…representing the variety of ways, the chances, the great and small openings, for keeping the risks and joys of life out or letting them in…

    • I certainly feel very pointedly the sense of all that in this first year of discovering such a wonderful world of fellow artists, writers, poets, bloggers and friends outside of my virtual doors and windows!
