Recessed Transitions (Thursday Doors)

in and out
linger in passing–
thresholded

direction hinges
on destination

This week I’m showing some recessed doors. They make for handsome entrances. I’m not sure what the turquoise stripe at the top is in the doorway above. It looks like a reflection of some sort–I’ll have to look for this doorway again.

The doorway below has interesting brickwork.

The poetic theme this week for Colleen’s Tanka Tuesday is transitions, selected by Ken Gierke (Rivrvlogr). Perfect for any doorway.

Here’s some information on the organization that owns The Three Arts Club building, above. “West Side Federation For Senior and Supportive Housing, Inc. (WSFSSH) was formed in 1976 by a coalition of social service agencies, religious institutions, and community organizations. Together we worked to create a new form of housing – one that would meet the diverse needs of older people and persons living with special needs.” I like the way their buildings are integrated into the neighborhood. There is certainly a great need for this kind of housing.

You can see more doors, hosted by Dan Antion, here.

    I’m glad I followed the link to the last building. There is no clue at how big the building is by the door. Sounds like the whole organization is an asset to the neediest citizens of your city.

    How I wish the plain and drab government-assisted funded housing here for seniors looked like the lovely one there! I love the doorway theme. And of course, windows.

    Ah, yes, I see the blue strip. A great poem for this prompt, Kerfe. I like the idea of a theme prompt very much.

    Your doors are always fun to see, Kerfe. I’m glad to see you write the modern tanka. Those last two lines: “direction hinges on destination,” says it all! And I love that there is senior housing to meet the diverse needs of older people and persons living with special needs. We need more affordable housing for everyone. It’s imperative! ❤

    I think my favorite part of these posts is the information about what’s housed behind the doors. Gives me an always-needed boost of hope for humanity.
