Keeper of the Door

Virgin of the Household
Virgin guarding a doorway, Morelia, Michoacán, México
 
For a day in thy courts is better than a thousand. I had rather be a doorkeeper in the house of my God, than to dwell in the tents of wickedness.
Psalm 84:10, King James Version
 


Keeper of the door,
never sleeping day or night,
bless all those within.

Sometimes paradise
is a poster with a plea
for a child’s return…

Old lopsided gum tree,
Loaded with strange treasure,
When my eyes behold you,
I am filled with pleasure!
