Green (Thursday Doors)
innocent of the leaving
that has no return.
You know the
adage—when one door
it’s true, this
world contains millions of doors–
they are everywhere.
I still greet
each new door with hope–
by unjaded promises–
freshly painted dreams.
Colleen’s #TankaTuesday prompt of the color green led me to look through my files for green doors. I love the detail on both the entrance to the building above, and its door.
I’ve never lived behind a green door, but this one, a few steps down, in inviting.
I like the grand surround to this door, especially when contrasted with the simplicity of its brick house.

My poem is a shadorma chain. I can’t help it, it’s my favorite form.
