Door






unlocked door 
smiles on welcome mat, 
black sheep weeps

black sheep weeps
father's orange robe,
humble feet

humble feet
bowl of warm water,
unlocked heart

~0~0

red bouquet, 
home made apple pie,
door opens

~0~0

morning sun, 
bright as new door keys,
open roads

    1. I am actually surprised at the colors comments but I am happy you like the play of it. My inspiration is the biblical take on the Prodigal Son for the first part of my post ~
