Door Ajar


I walked in through that door,
Which was only halfway open.
I walked in through another one,
That was only halfway closed.


In my confusion for which one to take,
I decided to take both, one at a time.
I then realized that neither one or the other,
Mattered while I wandered in.


I walked in through doors ajar,
Half open or closed in my life.
It made no difference, as I walked through,
For which one was wrong or which was right.

    Interesting Vera,
    As long as the door was not too far, too large, or on guard.
    Knock knock... come on in. (Report) Reply

Poem of the Day

poet Robert William Service

Just Home and Love! the words are small
Four little letters unto each;
And yet you will not find in all
The wide and gracious range of speech
Two more so tenderly complete:
