The door is always open


            The door is always open, John Lyons (40 x 40 cm, oil on canvas)

The door is always open

Out of the darkness
into the light
fire of passion
of blue sky
of pure white life

dark walls inclined
in daylight
green pastures await
art is departure
into something nobler
something brighter

black vectors

urge us to leave
to accept each exit
as entrance
to an outside world
in which the unfettered spirit
of the inner world

may flourish

doors pose challenges

have locks and keys
and mysteries lurk
on either side
of the frame : this is
the binary door
she loves me
she loves me not
take it
or leave it

John Lyons
