Thursday photo prompt: Invitation #writephoto

Tempting, open just a crack

Beckoning  to me, calling  me off the old track.

What delights are  hidden  through the gate, ajar

My senses  drawn to enter

The forbidden is always  a lure.

Like  Eve I am drawn to the unknown

Helpless to resist. Toward it I am drawn.

On the  fresh hold I stand with baited breath

Push the gate, feet itching no choice left.

I enter no man’s land  and  behold

Open my mind as the mysteries unfold.




This  is my  entry  for  Sue Vincent‘s Thursday Photo Prompt .

    Very lovely–and since there were so many comments on your About, I will leave mine here: I’m so very sorry about your health issues, but genuinely glad that writing has “saved your life”. I dare say that reading books, and writing are the reasons I’m still here today. And it is nice to meet in this community of writing.
