Strange Door (poem)

Updated on January 9, 2016

It passed upon a windswept melody

A scent of satin ‘cross a timeless shore

A sultry promise lingering for more

Soft moments lost await a kiss to be


Those dreams of heaven whispers will restore

Two torrid heartbeats touch their fantasy

Too much in love to set their spirits free

So melody lay locked behind strange door


Strange door the endless meaning of this love

Strange door which held the blessing to the day

Strange door to guarded secrets kept from view


To windswept passion they strolled realms above

From other whispers theirs was far away

Strange door its endless meaning would renew

      That was something! As did Vinaya, I loved the metaphor of the door. Lovely. It seems a fitting end to the evening so I am sharing.

      If we are truly fortunate, we cross an individuals path who helps us open that "door". For others, those secrets stay hidden away.

      What secrets lie beyond strange door? The passionate music in the video was perfection, MH. You always find music that captures the essence of your writing so well. Have a lovely lovely evening.

      Sending you many Angels this evening. :) ps

      A beautiful photo and the poem goes well with the background too. Very secretive indeed.
