A Door for Alice

door4alice

 

More window than door
for unlike that other mirror,
this version does not
let one into Wonderland,
It allows a look
but not
a step into that realm
where truth
is a relative term
and time
is a paradigm of mind,
not matter.

  1. Hi Sarah

    What a perfect picture and poem, a lovely pair indeed but that poem is very well done, imaginative and engaging. We often perceive something of ourselves when closing close into that mirror of not only glass but thought, and introspective reflection. It allows a look into the wonder of imagination and wishful thinking perhaps even memories of a younger self but we are still rooted in the present with a bit of wisdom and dreams inviting us into a different and significant place. Really enjoyed this piece; it intrigues!

    Thank you!

  2. Ahhh…allowing a look, but not a step
    into that realm.
    Only the brutal truth seen in this window? (Not a relative truth)
    although that may also include the truth of the things
    inside.
    Intriguing poem, Sarah.

    Very much enjoyed reading.
    take care,
    Kerri

  3. Dear Kerri,

    A perfect autumn day here, and a hello from Kerri.
    I’m a happy camper. Many thanks to you. (for
    the look into the heart of the poem and for being
    here)You and yours are always a part of my thoughts.
