Around the Corner



She overcame

her internal screaming toddler,

“I don’t wanna. I don’t wanna.”


Will Power offered a hand

linking her arm in his

to lead around the corner.


Her first step through

this now open door

a route unavailable

to her past self.

  1. I love the visual romanticism in this piece. The photo adds a nice touch but I when I close my eyes… I see a different type of door.

    Must find more time to recharge with your batteries.

    1. Mel, I love that you see a different kind of door. Poetry leaves space for the reader to create his own vision.
      I sit smiling knowing that my words are helping you to recharge. This is my intention in blogging, to give and connect openly.
