I See A Red Door …

I See A Red Door …

 Red is for danger
 so beware
 You would enter
 this door,
 assuming you could even reach it,
 at your own risk
 

 If I were to let you in
 it would be by invitation only
 On my terms
 I would control your entry
 from the inside
 No coming and going 
 as you please
 

 I do not know you well
 and I no longer trust
 

 So be it

 Sanaa from A Dash of Sunny is hosting D'Verse Poets tonight
 and she has prompted us with minimalist photography using photos
 provided by fellow poet and photographer Glenn Butkus. Check out
 his amazing photos on the D'Verse page. I chose the Red Door for my poem
 

A Gift – Quadrille

A Gift

Silver lined clouds
bringing hope after a heavy rain storm
A semi circle of rainbow
smudged against the grey expanse
that we might stare 
in amazement
Late afternoon rain showers
causing a mild inconvenience 
but gifting us
with the magical memories
of Nature’s wonders
