Ruby Tuesday: Two Doors

Panama.October.2009 131

Two doors framed in red—
behind them someone singing,
clinging to her bed…

  1. hi there mmteacher! i’m really enjoying my visit and your poetry and photos. thanks for visiting me too 🙂

  2. So we wouldn’t know someone is singing unless you tell us – right? The red doors and iron wrought balcony are quite stunning.

      Well, Leora, it all has to do with using one’s imagination. One of the first drafts of my little ditty had someone dying—but behind red doors? No, I’d rather have someone singing! 🙂

  3. I like this! Looking up can afford great things! Perfect red!

  4. i love doors magical teacher, especially when you are invited in and all you have to do is go over the threshold and see what’s behind the door.
    and these red doors are just scrumptious!
    have a very happy ruby tuesday…love terry

      Describing the red doors as “scrumptious”—how delightful, Terry! Thanks for using that delicious word, and for stopping by!

  5. Loree has the Romeo and Juliette balcony and you have the Eva Peron balcony. Just beautiful!

  6. Hmm.. unique! I wonder what the person was thinking when he painted the door this way. The poem is cool! 😀

    My RT entry is here. Happy RT! 🙂

      Maybe, Meikah, he or she just liked red. Or maybe that was the only color on hand the day that the paintbrush came out and s/he was inspired to splash a little color in the neighborhood.

  7. Very nicely shot, and I love the extra tidbit about someone singing. It really helps fill out the story the image tells.

  8. Excellent!!!!! It’s so filled with old world charm.

    My R T is seaworthy…OUCH! Click here

      Indeed it is—charming and “old world,” (even though Casco Viejo is very much a part of the New World).

  9. Very charming. For sure people can’t miss to look at that door. Happy RT.

  10. look! when one door closes another one opens – with the curtain lifted for much easier entrance.

  11. i can imagine someone singing but i still wonder why she’s clinging to her bed…

  12. Oh these are great. It makes me want to meet the people who live there.

  13. Lovely photograph 😉
    Your imagination makes
    your posts works of art!

    Happy Ruby Tuesday! Thanks for dropping by mine. Love the perfect Haiku you left there too.
    Hugs and blessings,

  14. look! it’s really true that when one door closes, another opens and in the open door here, the curtain is even lifted to make the entrance much easier.

  15. What a charming red ruby picture and poem! Love your words! Thanks for sharing today!

  16. that’s a lovely balcony
    I like the angle you took

  17. I think when I cling to my bed, I don’t sing that much..
    (Well, then again, it’s not for me to tell what others might do).
    I’d find it more likely that a senorita is sitting on the balcony with her oh, so decent fan, listening to her passionate admirer singing serenades from down on the ground.
    I made a cross stitch embroidery of such a scene when I was 14.

  18. Great photo, interesting poem. What tune was filling the sunny air?
