A DOOR


I love doors.
What do the open to?
What’s behind this one?
If I were to guess, then
I would say that the ocean
lies behind this door.
A white stairway, with colorful
flowers growing on each side,
leads down to white sand.
Sand so soft that it feels like
velvet between your toes.
Before you, all you can see is ocean
in shades of blue and green.
In my mind, I run down the stairs
and sit down in the sand.
I take a deep breath of salty air
and watch the seagulls swoop
down to catch any fish on the surface
of the clear water.
All this can be seen just from a door.
