Door of Shadows

Would you walk through the door of gold, into the world of shadows.
Would you walk if you knew that treasure gleamed
Beckoning you forwards.
You can leave behind any thing, everything.
Bring only what you can carry.
Tomorrow is a new dawn,
And you will return with untold gold,
If your heart is filled with courage and you are worthy.

Peep through some other doorways at the DPWeekly Challenge – Doors.

About greenmackenzie

Hi, I'm Seonaid, and I share my home on the shores of Loch Ness deep in the Scottish Highlands with my husband, my son and a couple of dogs. I love art which is here now and gone food and nature...but also have a passion for vintage and the ancient past! Nature is my favourite muse, with her wild ever shifting seasons. I have been using and teaching mindfulness and relaxation for over 12 years, and have yet to become any sort of expert :-) I'm a Psychotherapist and Cancer Support Specialist in Maggies Highlands

      It’s the main door of the church in the grounds of Dalkeith Palace, so plenty of Royal feet will have crossed its threshold in the past. Glad to hear you liked the post.

    P.S. Don’t know if my other ‘Likes’ have come through as wordpress tries to run me around a bit, but I do enjoy your breathofgreenair.

    • Thanks David, lovely to hear from you. WordPress seems to like giving us wee challenges….haven’t seen your other likes but its always great to know you’re reading and looking 🙂 Sxx

  11. I love how you use the door as a metaphor. I, too, have a door that brought out a poem with lots of existential questions. One of these days, I’ll post it on my blog.
