Beautiful photograph by Julie Powell


Overgrown, cloistered
broken path beckons enter,
mysteries await

Beyond yon gateway
sweet surcease entices all
safe harbor perhaps?

Or a peaceful mask
for unbounded violence
does this door provide?

We find as we seek
death or life, evil or good,
poison or sweet balm

Enter then at risk
of encountering your fate
heart safely guarded

      1. Oh my! That’s something to think about! But you’re a professional and I’m merely a dabbler–I’d be willing, but you’d have to approve anything I wrote. Even if it’s just for family is never want to write words that didn’t do justice to your art. I love this idea, though!
