If a Door Opens


If a door opens,
say good-bye to here and now,
let the light lead you.

  1. Perfect words for this. And so true. 🙂

  2. well it just spellbounds me how inspirational are your haiku. you’re a master.

  3. Great Haiku. The reflection of the door is so strong it does indeed make an effort to lead me through it!

  4. striking image – soft hand leading, how often do we miss that open door?

  5. I like it all, shadows, reflections and haiku!

  6. great shot and great words. Would work for weekend reflections as well

  7. You can look at this in a different light. When one door closes, another will open with many shadows of life.

  8. lovely sentiment and shadow, too.

  9. An inspiring haiku accompanied by beautiful lighting and a view beyond the window!

  10. Henreitta Katie Choplin

    …..good words, yet, great courage is needed…..

  11. Wonderful photo with it’s strong reflection in the wall hangings. Each item on the wall shows a bit of the door’s reflection. Awesome shot and a wonderful haiku too.

  12. Lovely!

    I also wanted to comment on your Stilt Walker, but can’t unless I sign in or something, so will do it here. I just wanted to suggest that, while that one obviously can appeal to all ages, I think t would be very good in a children’s antholog, — if you could find one. 🙂 Anyway, you might like to bear it in mind in case.
