Seven Doors

June 30, 2005

and we flew among the clouds
and caught some misplaced geometry
in the corner of our eyes
and we smiled as we realized
it was the fabled seven doors

and the first door was hope
and the second was healing
both doors we knew quite well
the comfortable beckonings of friends

and the third door was our new friend
the door whose name was love
we'd passed through this door a time or two
and we smiled as we recalled the recent lessons

and the fourth door was new
and it created echoes of the fear
but we rejoiced that it was time
to cross the threshold into this fresh realm

the name on the fourth door was vows
and the time to walk through was at hand
and i smiled as i saw your hand turn the knob
and the angel in you smiled back
