A door awaits you,
Find it.
A door awaits you,
Enter it.

A door
That guards not,
To keep you away..
That stands only,
To guide you this way..
That draws you,
To whisk you away..

As you approach, knock not,
It flings its arms open
in welcome.

Pause a moment,
ponder over,
the trail you've
left behind

Close your eyes,
let the wind
Carry you over to
the other side.

As you cross the border
Of two worlds,
Place your finger,
A delicate touch
On the door,
Like a groom does
to A bride,
Suffuse it's weathered
body and soul with
An imprint of
your life,

Let it breathe In
your travails,
into its grains,

Let go your finger,
Enter it, And

He Trod Away..

He trod away,
On his way
Far away.

Along waves
Of Green,
By the lanes
Of Earth.

Nature beckons,
Sends summon.
As birds chirp,
A sermon.

The grass blades
In the glades,
Snip his palms.
As he wades.
A faint cut,
Permits Passage.

Her Eyes follow,
Longing sprouts,
Pearly tears
Adorn Her 

His frame flames
And fades Over
The horizon.
Her heart freezes
Into the Dark,
Fringes Of Stillness

He trod away,
On his way,
Far away.

The messenger wind,
Runs, hops and ambles,
about the leaves,
Bringing with it,
Uttering of other
leaves far away,..

"Wake up! Curl up!"
"Droop no more!"
"The sun is out"

Wakes the trees up,
With a gentle nudge
Does the Excited wind,
As the leaves rustle
A Welcome to the
Cleansing rays,

Which nestles on leaves,
Penetrates the gaps,
Till they be trapped
In the maze,
Of knit leaves,
As Clouds smile at 
this play,

I stand underneath,
Half wet with shine
Half kissed with shade,

The light promises me
Unseen Temptation, 
The shade promises me
Seen Satisfaction,

To Whose side shall I 
Snuggle over to ?
