Suspended in Space

Portals of Promise
Portals of Promise

Thrust into thin air,
Releasing the trapeze
that has been my life,
Up to now.

Buoyed only by the air beneath me,
Hoping that another will come in time;
Suspended in the void,
I reflect.

With the wisdom of hindsight
Seeing all that has been,
I’m blind to what lies

The door to history closed,
Destiny propels me to a new portal
Ahead, slowly sliding open…

This was written I response to this week’s Trifecta challenge: DOOR
1: a usually swinging or sliding barrier by which an entry is closed and opened; also : a similar part of a piece of furniture
2: doorway
3: a means of access or participation : opportunity

  1. I’m in love with your trapeze metaphor. You could really build on that!

    Thanks for linking up! Don’t forget to come back and vote!


  2. Life is ever-changing…and that change does feel like we’re suspended in mid-air hoping for the trapeze bar (or at least a net to catch us if we miss?)


I'd appreciate your feedback (Please, leave a comment)!
