key gate

Search to find true understanding

To listen without demanding

I seek to know what makes you whole

Like peering through an old keyhole


Opening my whole heart to you

No matter what you say or do

Being ignored can take its toll

Like peering through that old keyhole


We aren’t looking to be the same

Nor to be hateful and cast blame

I want to see your sacred soul

Like peering through that old keyhole

In the Garden we are asked to write about “Keyholes”. Susie Clevenger is our gardener today. Thank you, Susie.

“So my talented poets today’s challenge is to write from a keyhole perspective. It can be a glimpse on the inside or looking to the outside. You have complete freedom with only the usual restrictions…new poem, share…read the work of your fellow poets. Happy writing!!”~Susie

I have been writing all my life but for the most part, it has been a secret. My parents did not believe writing was a good way to earn money so I hid my poems. Then one day, I wanted to comment on an essay that a friend had written and found myself with a blog. That quiet whisper inside said, "You can write your poetry and no one will ever know.". I knew nothing of followers and the like at that time. So, here I am trying to learn my craft and enjoying every moment of it. My personal details are, I'm 57, married for 39 years, have one grown son who is God's gift to us and last but not least at all, I'm a Baha'i which basically means that I love all humanity.
