A DOOR



A door.
A simple door.
A pot of flowers
sitting before it.
The number one beside it.
What does it mean?
Is the door closed off
from the outside?
No one is to enter.
Why?
Why are the flowers
blocking the way?
Is there a hidden society
tucked away inside?
Or maybe a family
afraid of visitors.
You’ll never know,
unless you knock on the door.
Do you really want to?
Do you want to find out,
or maybe keep it a secret?
The truth might not be
as interesting,
as tantalizing.
Walk away.
Keep the mystery alive.
