Door
A door of the Greek island Naxos, with acknowledgements to the WordPress blog ‘americanfoodieabroad’ and its author for use of this image, and all kudos to the 3 cats involved in its taking.

whatever
was
a
wall,
undone
in the
flip in
flip out
of space
to the
breathing
room,
door,
more seen
than ever
opened,
doors on
islands split
in sun, doors
to lesser
glooms,
the hues
that verge
in dusk
in dawn
door to
the day,
door
to the
night,
the swing
of the clock,
the pendulum
arm, door
to the minute
closing
