MAGPIE...Prompt #150


                                               Image/ Daniel Murtagh       

Thank you, Tess, at Magpie Tales....Just words today, wish I could post that lovely photo...inspired nevertheless!

 Well, as you can see, I was finally able to post the photo...angels must have helped, certainly wasn't Blogger!!



THE DOOR

Strung together,
like cheap pearls,
my moment,
my heart,
soul a grain of sand,
powerless
in the grasp of vanity.

Pride opens the door,
the breach unguarded,
transient details unfold.

Always an inner fee
when I was the wine,
when I was the rose.

That last line is just the kick in the gut! Who of us hasn't known that feeling, when the bill comes due?

Lyn said...

Hi Rick-
Thank you for that interesting comment. That bill...

Karen S. said...

Oh for sure- it's all those inner fees that cost so much! :)
A very lovely write- sorry about your picture troubles- it seems it's always something with the internet- or blogger or etc! Enjoy your week!
