The way of the world


Doors are
at the heart
of the matter
art’s space
a condensation
of time
of coordinates
Doors of perception
art poetry
keys to known
and unknown

or paths
to or from
what lies beyond
what brought us
to this point
what expectations
are held

How many doors
in my life ?
When one closes
another opens
or so we hope

Love is a door

into another’s
heart and or
a door open

to another’s heart
: this is the way
of the world
not how it ends
but how it begins

John Lyons
