The Door — Ha Ha on Me!

I could write a short book about my foray into blogland!  I was dutifully reading my followings today and saw a bunch of doors labeled photo challenge or some such thing. Having just come from entries on statues, I chose a door and wrote something about it (see below).  I had been told that on the “Home Page” of Dverse is a calendar of topics for the month. I couldn’t find anything called home page but did find that tonight was something called “poetics,” without explanation on that page that I could see. I don’t know how–maybe it was talk of us writing on “moods” that alerted me I had goofed again.  Will return after the July vacation (f I read correctly).  (signed with love, Nan the Nerd).


Bi-paneled, it can be opened wide

to let the right ones come inside.

Does not the grandeur of this gate

make you pause,  even hesitate?

I want in, but do I dare face

this sacred, special holy place?

 A heathen, I would be shut out

even if I should knock and shout.

A great archetype, it stands sedate

against my wisdom come too late.

About Nan Mykel

At 79, I was just about to stop keeping a journal, but that felt like accepting that growth was finished. I don't want to be finished, yet! I'm 80 now, and struggling to communicate with you, if you'll come and set awhile. P.S. My how time flies! I'm 83 now.

    There is a sense of alternation between knocking and hesitating in your poem.


  2. Loved it! The big beautiful doors as an archetype is illuminating.
    Dverse will be on leave for the first two weeks of July only, so you have many prompt days still. The homepage is simply:
    The various prompts are posted daily Monday to Thursday.
