Old doors and windows – Kefalonia/Greece

paralyzed
I refuse to choose and
so the doors that lie before me
remain forever unopened

some sit ajar…just a bit
a crack to let light in
brightening the shadows of “what if”…just a bit
immobile, however,
the hinges grow stiff in their waiting

possibility remains trapped,
paralyzed behind the door
I refuse to let swing wide
saying to myself,
“what if it’s the wrong door?”

    • Dear Peter, this sounds a bit like wisdom of age. Maybe that’s normal, that you open a lot of doors when you’re young, because you are brave and not afraid of what’s inside. But of course sometimes opening doors can be a disappointment, too and learning by this we don’t open doors so easily when we get older. But I hope that you will open some more nice doors in future. I’m also just thinking about closing one door and opening another, but I’m a little afraid yet. Maybe that’s why old doors are so fascinating for me. Have a sunny day, kind regards Mitza

    • Thomas, you really sensed the “expression” of this old wooden window. I really like your words for it and completely agree. It was a very plain, simple and cheap window for a little farm house. Have a nice day, regards Mitza

  1. Bin immer wieder erstaunt über die Vielfalt und Farbkombinationen. Einfach toll! Suche selbst auch gerade nach der passenden Tür, die sich öffnet. Liebe Grüße und schönes Wochenende, Jule 🙂
