Open

The door to another year has opened
to let me in – or is it out?
Chill air wakens my lungs,
new and fresh it forces me to breathe deeply,
open my lips and sing
with the promise of green buds and snowdrops,
old friends and new birth.
I just have to step out the door.

Kim M. Russell, 2018

My response to Poets United Midweek Motif ~ Doorway(s)

My first poem for Poets United is an octet, a small step into this poetry community.

  1. So lovely to see you here Kim with such a beautiful gift of a poem. So many wonderful images specially that of the ‘promise of green buds’. “old friends and new birth. / I just have to step out the door.” I believe this too. Happy New Year 🙂

    1. Thank you, Sumana! I’m surprised I hadn’t come across Poets United before. If I’d known who was all taking part, I’d have joined in earlier. I’m glad I’m here now. happy New Year to yo!
