The Door Way




















Image: Origin Unknown



Half Moon Rising

talked to me tonight

of the Old Stories –


Lives passing before my eyes.


She said,


“The one who closes the door,

is the one who must open it.


Courage is the key,


and This is not in your hands.”


Seeing the tear rush for the

crest of my cheek,


She asked,


“What is it Dear?”


And I answered,


“The trouble with being a Seer

is that you begin to experience

The Grief and The Joy

a thousand years before

that singular moment of manifestation

is thrown into the Past.”


Half Moon Arisen replied,


“Now you know your special way

of tearing your heart open to make

room for what you will

one day receive.”
