Thursday Doors on Friday: Red Doors

In the beginning you can divide the questions
into a multitude of forms.
For your second act define your journey.
Offer your voice to the silence of light.
Remember to open the secret red door.
Do you know why?
It’s too early to be the end.
Simple, really.

For the Kick-About prompt this week I did a collage inspired by Leger’s painting The City. When I consulted the collage box Oracle, it gave me some cryptic advice about a red door. Which led me to search in my files for any red doors I had photographed–perhaps one of them was the secret city door of the message. The one above I had obviously noticed on more than one occasion, as I had multiple photos from different dates.

It certainly looks as if it could hold a few secrets.

Here’s a preschool door–on weekdays there are strollers parked both inside and out. Who knows what secrets reside in the mind of a 3-year-old?

And here’s a handsome red church door, in an old building that I’m sure holds many of its own secrets.

As always, you can see more doors and join in Thursday doors yourself here.

    Hi Kerfe, these are great red doors. I don’t think I’ve seen a red door ever in South Africa. I enjoyed your collage which I saw over at Phil’s and I loved your poem.

      Thanks Robbie. I love wooden doors, but I’m always on the lookout for doors of different colors. Red definitely stands out. I did not think I was thinking of doors when I did the collage, but I guess they are always in the back of my mind now.

    I love the idea of a secret being hidden behind closed doors! The first door reminds me of a classic British telephone box.

    I’m not fond of the color red and I always think a red door is in some way repelling rather than welcoming, but that’s just how it feels to me. I’m a yellow or chartreuse fan myself. Your post made me think about door colors and which ones invite me inside.

      I think we all have preferences. I like natural wood myself, and arches, but colors always get my attention. I’ve not seen a yellow one yet, but I’m sure there’s one waiting to be found!

    There’s something about your door series (not just this set) that makes me miss visiting NYC… I never lived there, but I did love to walk around Manhattan!

    Beautiful poem, Kerfe, and great doors. I love red doors and the good fortune they represent. I grew up in a house with a secret door and love crawling into the little cubby room behind it.

    Beautiful. One big reason i loved Ireland; the care and attention paid to home care and maintenance. Such beautiful doors everywhere! And always someone outside painting. 🤗
