in rising above
the sordid reality
– free from attachment
the guiding into silence
is riddled; these unused doors

Nice to read
Hi! You inspired me to write this:
Vivian, I saw and commented but don’t see my comment on your post. WP is having another burp where most stuff is going into spam. Please check, you’ll probably find other comments there too?
Thanks Petru! (that’s your name?😊)
Hi Vivian, Yes, Petru is my first name. 🙂
But what’s a door if it’s not to be cracked? The suspense, I imagine.
Some doors are better left unopened, but if you don’t take a peek you will never know what is on the other side.
[…] Inspired by Unused Doors by pviljoen […]
I like these unused doors. The possibilities are endless.
Thank goodness there are many doors… and all unused. Time for adventure…. especially..’without attachment’ 🙂
Easier said than done for sure!
It depends… on how desperate you are. Lovely Tanka. 🙂
Oh those un used doors…and where they might have led…
Will, Bryan, where they will lead.
yes…some are will….but some doors, once left unopened, tend to disappear (and sometimes that might be a good thing)
thought-provoking read. I concur about the photo and how well it works with your poem.
… for growth.
Reblogged this on Frank J. Tassone and commented:

‘these unused doors’ so full of mystery. Let’s fling a few of them open.
I loved this on so many levels–the unused doors seems a perfect metaphor here–
I like the way you ended this. Made the poem powerful.
That stone, your photography, are both breath-taking.
Thank you! It’s a small stone but its heart is big I’d like to think. I gave it as a gift to a friend.
I liked the reference to “unused doors”.
We all have them.
‘the guiding into silence is riddled; these unused doors’.. my goodness this is potent!❤️
They can be just as challenging and mysterious, hiding potential surprises!
Thanks Hank. I had to get this back from the spam folder. WP is having another burp!
Those doors are full of possibilities ~
I am fixated on your photo. Wow. It’s a picture of the endless, I feel.
Thanks Claudia. It’s a small stone but I photographed it so it appears large. I gave it to a friend.
Interesting ideas presented here.Doors and riddles works so well in this context.
Maybe the unused doors are there for simple reason to bring hope.
… and freedom.
