Shades of Gray ~ #writephoto

 

Shades of Gray

Let me in. Don’t let me in.
Door after door, opening,
leading ever deeper.
Questions within questions.
The light in your eyes
telling me to enter,
yet offering no answers.

Shadows, hints, that tell nothing,
yet say everything about you.
All of this leading nowhere.
Nothing, but the next,
and the next, each time
leaving little to hold onto
but shades of gray.

This is my response to Thursday Photo Prompt: Open #writephoto

A Wall I Cannot Scale ~ #writephoto

 

A Wall I Cannot Scale

Where once it was possible
to breach the wall that has grown
between us, it has become ever darker
within, so that not even the light of day
can reach you. Here, there is life.
I hear robins and sparrows. What birds
call to you, and would they want to
be in such darkness? Would I want to
open a door that is now forever closed?

Out of Darkness ~ #writephoto

Out of Darkness

That we come out of the darkness does not
mean there will always be light. We leave

behind the trials that have plagued us
for better days, but challenges come

at the most unexpected of times.
If such be our path, know that

we have the strength to survive,
that darkness does not hold power over us.

The photo for Thursday Photo Prompt: Threshold #writephoto from Sue Vincent’s Daily echo is described as “the view from within a cave on the sea shore, looking out onto a beach.[with] the shadowy entrances of other caves across the bay…”

Friend Me ~ #writephoto

Friend Me

Crystal clear, this vision:
crowded together, en masse,
in our virtual world.

Our intricacies on display,
ready to be rooted out
by curious minds.

This world is no sanctum
behind leaded glass. There’s nothing
sacred here. Secrets like tulips,

waiting to be picked.
Make no bones about it;
we know each other too well.
