2020-10-26 – Cold Side of the Door

shaken from a
knotty
net..

i tumble from sky
through dusty gloom
to crawl across
a grassy
room

towards pale
balloon

strung around
a copper
knob..

knocker’s a crab
with hungry
claws

mud crusted,
fresh from
the bog,

back for
more..

+++

a welcome charm
on any home
owner’s
door,

each knock’s a pause
for thought and a
bit of levity..

for those still stuck
on frosty side
of warmer
shores.
