Thursday photo prompt #writephoto – Door

I do love Sue’s photo prompts! She has given a beautiful door to work with this week. And I give to you, a poem made up of 3 tankas – a Trianka!

Wales 011

The Unknown…

What is it that lies
Beyond the ancient entrance
Cloaked in mystery?
A portal to a new world
Or simply another house?

Do you dare to look?
To turn that rusty door knob?
To push it open?
To force ageing joints to creak?
To quench your thirst for the truth?

But be careful though
You know not, what you may find
Like Pandora’s box
Could be a pleasant surprise
Or you may unleash a beast….

Ritu 2016

Funny, but as I wrote this, all that kept on going through my mind was the EU Referendum today! We were all faced with this dilemma… do we vote to stay, and stay on this side of the ‘door’, safe with what we know? Or do we take the risk, and push open that door, to see what lies beyond the confines of Europe?

See what your Referendum has done to my mind, Government?! It’s taken over my creative process!

    There is always mystery about closed doors, sometimes I sense a foreboding other times a sense of fun. All like a book, judging by its “cover,” Ritu. 🙂

    A brilliant trinaka to match that beautiful and intriguing door Sis. Well, now we know what awaits us on the other side 🙂

    Looks as if we’ve gone through that door, Ritu. I wonder what awaits us?

    Definitely a very good analogy. As we know now there are dramatic changes coming up for the UK and England. I idiot did not change my pounds back yet…. oh well…. but that will be the smallest problem. We will see….

    Thanks, Ritu 🙂 Oddly enough, I’ve written about Pandora for tomorrow… though she’s another beast altogether 😉
