Thursday Doors – June 23, 2016:Sunflower Door

This  is  part of  Norm Frampton’s Thursday Doors prompt.

Sunflower Door

Two years ago  while on  holiday in Italy  I  found  this  beautiful  door  in  the  back  allies  of  a  town  who’s  name escapes  me  now.

As usual  my  imagination  when into  over  drive  and I  wrote  this  little poem.



There is a door in the wall
If I step through it will I fall?
What is on the other side
My curiosity I cannot hide.

In this tall walled alley steeped with history.
I feel the souls from hundreds of years,they speak to me.


Thousands of feet have passed this way.
Births,deaths,those who betray.
Intrigue and bloody murder.
A woman shamed, who attacked her.

Yet in the here and now I stand.
Looking at this sunflower door and
Wonder what is on the other side?
I long to step forward and throw it wide.


It would of been a step into infinity.
The door hide a fearful drop indeed the end of me.
Yet I am here to tell the tale
Fate’s test I passed, happily I did not fail.


The  other side of  the door!

    What a lovely door and poem, Willow. So that’s why it has a padlock on it then. Great view, though.

    The door on it’s own is lovely but I like the twist added by the poem – nicely done 🙂
