traverse (with Thursday Doors)

which side of the door welcomes?
which side retreats?
every opening carries a journey–
without or within?
the threshold faces both ways

Colleen’s #TankaTuesday theme of travel/journeys works well with my twin Thursday doors. I’ve written a gogyohka.

    “every opening carries a journey–
    without or within?” That’s so true. We enter and leave.

    A door gogyohka! This word is fully new for me but vaguely Slavic looking. I know doors though and your questions cover their mystery well.

    Once you think about going in, the outside you just traversed is changed a little ….

    The possibilities are endless with gogyohka! This is fabulous, Kerfe. I like the architecture of the doors themselves. Great existential questions! Every opening carries a journey… Excellent. ❤

    Doorways are so symbolic and great metaphors. Wonderful poem, Kerfe. 🙂

    There are many doors like this in the UK from Victorian schools with an entrance for boys and an entrance for girls, often with Boys and Girls written above them.
