than poured concrete
cracking into gravel
underfoot, this door shows
there is light moved toward
& light that finds
today the EXIT
frames the obvious
the way out
At Dverse today, we are seeking inspiration from photographs taken by Mobius Faith. Thank you, Terry, for lending us your images today.
What an image!
Isn’t it? You really should check out his other pics on the Dverse site or on his blog…really trigger something…
“there is light moved toward
& light that finds”
these two lines made me sigh… feel lighter somehow. great words, susan… wonderful composition.
Miriam, thank you! I am so glad you liked this.
smiles…def go to the light this time…there is a great relief when we see that door…that exit….especially when we have been trapped in those dark places….def feel lighter….like i said…a relief…
Yes, Brian, I agree–there is a freedom here, steps away from it….
Yes, the doors swing both ways, I like that you see it as a way out. Very excellent interp of the photo!
Henry–thanks so much!
Really nice poem. “exit frames the obvious” is such a cool phrase. Love what you did here. 🙂
Terry–thank you for the inspiration! Your art was wonderful.
Looks like something I built. 😉
Light moving towards and light that finds… sounds ominous.
Oh–interesting take–I like the ominous slant you saw, although I saw the exact opposite– I saw the same as comforting. That’s the beauty of poetry–the multiple layered possibilities…
Well done – though hard to go through the dark part. k.
Yes–have to take a deep breath and start stepping…Thank you!
Love the vividness of your images
There is an optimism here in the light. Well written
thank you, Beth!
this is beautiful. simply beautiful. I especially love your opening paragraph, the hard edged imagery. concrete, gravel… underfoot.
Jane, thanks so much!
the way into the light…i think you capture the atmosphere perfectly…the hope that comes with walking through that door
Thank you, Claudia.

Nicely penned. Yes, the only way out of the darkness is THROUGH it. There is no other way!
How the light draws us moths toward it and the freedom it promises. I love that you have the light moving, that you keep the light central as a soft moving space beyond solid dark concrete.
Thank you, Susan!
Beautiful, Susan. 🙂
Thank you, C.
