I'm glad I got to fly back by with a little longer layover this time...

sometimes those adorable doors swing wide pointing-- painting with a thousand words the sonnets of our souls-- and we know even long down weathered halls lined with exits to destinations that bear no peace -- we do a better thing for the door to see it secured....when you care more for the door...

kudos micheal..

your imagery here is entertaining and poignant -- a real statement about the human condition

and the best we can do
for our beloved door

I was reading in Critical Analysis this morning where you linked over to this piece, Michael.  

I remember this one ... and admire the tension you were able to build throughout.

In my eyes, you are a master no matter what form you choose to write in! Loved this.

Best wishes and hugs,
/Kit

indeed you need cases of bottles to write this.
I read it as your ballad, because it sounds better
Love the read. You are gifted again and again and again!

Write more free verse, please! The golf court is the best place to start.
