Prompt 18: Doorway

Thanks to Pam Olson of Amputated Moon for this week's prompt, doorway and for this image.

the doorway lies before us
we wait at the threshold of silence
between past and future

to dwell in this threshold
holding silence close and dear
neither here nor there

wait as the seconds become minutes
moving on to months and years
silence surrounds silence

take it in and wait
until the time comes
then– just breathe and take a step

  7. Love the poem and the picture. I can just feel the anticipation and the silence of waiting. Your prompt inspired at least 3 or 4 poems from me, but I have only posted one. (However, I took 71 photos trying to find the right one to pair with it!)
