Enchanted (Thursday Doors)

It looks like
long ago and
far away,
waiting for once
upon a
time—shall we?—it
seems to be expecting us.

Diana Peach provided the above image for Colleen’s #TankaTuesday which, of course, was perfect for Thursday Doors. I wrote my poem, a Whitney (3/4/3/4/3/4/7) to her image and then looked in my door photo archive for suitable doors to match. I was enchanted by the way the top door matched so beautifully its gate.

This door has always seemed mysterious to me. Where does the shadowy staircase inside lead?

And for some reason this door always makes me think of Hobbits. Plenty of enchantment there.

    What excellent door selections that go so well with Diana’s picture and the #Tanka Tuesday prompt. I was glad to learn about a “Whitney” form of syllabic poetry! And, finally, what a great poem, whimsical and magical, it made me smile.

    We shall, Kerfe. 🙂 Wonderful invitation, and I loved the doors too. Those are beautiful. I always wanted an arched door… maybe a gate will do.

    I love the idea of the door being “alive” and waiting for adventurers to enter. Well done, Kerfe! And your extra doors definitely seem enchanted as well. 🙂

    I love this Whitney form, Kerfe. I must add that to the list of forms to try. When Diana sent me the image of the door, I knew you would love it! It goes well with all the other whimsical doors you find. ❤

    I have a thing about doors. Ever since I was a child they fascinated me. When you think about how many beings both alive and in in spirit have entered the most magnifcent doorways of churches, temples, even mausoleums. I guess I was influenced greatly by my dad and his love for architecture. Love your work.
