TAKE ME TO PARADISE

TAKE ME TO PARADISE

Our imagination entices us.
It takes us to new places.
It fulfills our needs.
It defines us.

With our eyes closed,
We could explore the world.
Nothing to limit us.
Nothing to get in our way.

Oceans could be crossed.
Far away places visited.
Mountains climbed.
Passions enjoyed.

Doors to be opened.
Thresholds crossed.
Our minds have the capabilities.
So many possibilities.

A closed door stands before me.
Hiding its own secrets. 
I will not let it
Stop me or inhibit me.

I will cross its threshold 
With eyes wide open.
Ready to take on the day
And maybe even the night.

The door opens to flowers and sunshine.
Lounge chairs on the hot sand.
The sun shining on the ocean,
Revealing palettes of blues and greens.

A perfect paradise waits for me.
A bathing suit lies across a chair.
Time for a swim and a tan.
A beautiful escape.

Maybe a little too perfect?
The sea breeze becomes a little rougher.
The waves stand a little taller.
The palm trees whip around in the wind.

It is my fantasy.
Its direction is in my hands.
Storm or a peaceful, tropical day.
Some excitement is definitely needed.

Heavy winds approach Oasis’ shore.
I make a quick retreat to the hotel.
I join my friends at the bar 
As palm trees fly across the pool deck.

I will follow my imagination
To wherever it may lead.
I hope this story has a happy ending.
For me and the town of Oasis, Florida.

THE DEAD GAME

ARE YOU READY?

WILL CURIOSITY BE THE DEATH OF YOU?

The door.

The fear of not knowing.

The fear of knowing.

What to do?

Open it and step inside.

You might be happy.

Or you might be dead.

But you’ll never know

until you open that door.

OPEN THE DOOR

An open door invites.<br /> An open door beckons to visitors.<br /> Who can resist an open door?<br /> Who doesn’t want to take a peek inside?<br /> What treasures might be hidden on the other side?<br /> Or what evil might be lying in wait for us?<br /> Open the door and find out.<br /> I know you want to.

 

 An open door invites.
 An open door beckons.
 Who can resist it?
 Who doesn’t want to take a peek?
 What treasures might be hidden on the other side?
 Or what evil might be lying in wait for us?
 Open the door and find out.
 I know you want to.

DOOR TO NOWHERE

15turchia

Some days you want to escape.

To a place far away.

Meet new people.

Leave old baggage behind.

Open the proverbial door.

See if the grass is greener.

On the other side.

Most of the time it isn’t.

A door balanced at the edge of a pier.

It might not be holding any answers.

Home might have had the answers all along. 

THE NIGHT

The night caters to our whims.

It caters to our deepest fears.

Our nightmares come alive.

They stalk us in our sleep.

They follow us back into our rooms.

To stalk us in the night.

They wait behind the closed door.

Should I open it?

Let them in?

Why not?

They are my closest friends.

TRAPPED IN MY OWN DARK THOUGHTS

 

 

I’m trapped in my own dark thoughts,

forever roaming beneath the twinkling stars.

I can see an open door in the distance,

offering possibilities beyond the here and now.

I want to escape from this dreary existence

to sample the tastes of the wide and far.

A DOOR TO THE UNKNOWN

 

 

A DOOR TO THE UNKNOWN

A door sits in Oasis, Florida.
It waits to be opened.
Step over its threshold.
You may step into a dream
of floating stars and planets.
Or into your worst nightmare
of demons and the undead.
Be careful where you step.
Be careful what you wish for.
