“Every opportunity you need is behind a door. How many doors are you willing to knock down?” (Sanita Belgrade)
As a curious minded traveler, I usually look forward to making sense of the mysteries encountered beyond doors. In stubborn pursuit of this task, I am well aware that doors function primarily to provide privacy and protection for occupants in structural design. Yet in a mysterious way, doors seem to serve as a gateway to life itself. For I choose to focus my thoughts now on what symbolic messages does a door provide about betterment of humankind or myself as I might boldly adventure inside an appealing portal’s path.
Imagine then if such a magical door could talk. What words of wisdom would they say to me as I entered? Perhaps the person (s) inside would greet me in a similarly positive way. The following poem of mine inspired by some inviting door photos from our recent travels might reveal one answer to this question.
Who enters my portal come dare to see
I hear gentle rapping there’s no reason to flee
For foggy minds clear in trusting one’s fate
To visions of safe passing but never to hate
So go open the door and dust off your shoes
Feel breakaway beyond to end your blues
Come friend be humble for I take no side
For in my borderless world I’ve got nothing to hide
