Walls and Doors

by Venkat


Every layer of brick
not a wall

Every opening
not a door

All that blocks
becomes not a wall

All that moves
makes not a door

I saw but doors
where you laid cemented stones

I felt but bricks
where you let the light in

When I figured your home
In its nooks and corners
When you figured mine

We found the same light to read
and same shadows to hold

  1. An exquisite poem! Loved what I have read!

  2. Love this . . . you have a way with words. Venkat

  3. I accidentally hit period in front of your name instead of comma. It’s harder typing on a phone than a computer. Sorry.
