A Door Through the Highway one shot wednesday #33

Untangle crowded doorways
leading to changeable shades 
weeping willow trees
with spiders
weaving intricate webs
as Gabriel blows his horn
in the summertime
from a mountain
in the distance

Cross the highway
not yielding to the
double yellow line
passing fervently into
mist that leads me into
a fluorescent green pasture
as Francisco spreads his arms
in winter
on the river’s bank
water overflowing

I will step into the day
placing the night behind me
never looking back


  1. This poem covers some mileage - a great place to arrive at Day

    thanks for sharing with One Shot and nice to meet you.

  2. Nice to meet you, too, moondustwriter.

  3. Beautiful Pam...with the arms of Francisco open wide you can feel in the movement out of the city and the know and into the mist...very nice..bkm

  4. Reads like a poetic tale of personal redemption with some excellent references. Nice work!

  5. quite the journey you took...and quickly but on the other side i imagine you that much more happy..smiles.

  6. Enjoyed your dreamscape, Pamela.

  7. Postcard from a slightly surreal travelogue for me, I enjoyed going there with you in spirit. The view looking back may be beautiful, but it makes your neck hurt after awhile.

  8. I love how the journey moves from familiar to mythic landscapes, or how the one interpenetrates the other. This double vision -- to see with human and angelic eyes, perhaps -- is what good poetry enables. Very nice job. -- Brendan

  9. I used to have chronic neck pain Joy:)

    'I step into the say
    placing the night behind me
    never looking back'
