Harvest Door

Harvest Door Indian summer sighs a shy farewell Days pit-a-pat To a door Closing Shut ~ Fall Knocking Quietly In harvest moons While frost blows air kisses through the keyhole. 9-8-20 Picture #1 Double Tetractys Poetry Contest Sponsor: Eve Roper

Hi John! Thank you! The door image just seemed to welcome the idea of time passing. I loved your poem on this image - especially the handle as a person. Elbow bumps and fist pumps...some blessings too!
