Are you jaded, drab with a dying spirit?
Can nothing charm you, excite?
Open the door,
stand in its exposed,
look skyward toward those twinkling
stars with new found eyes.
Scientists probe for answers
of the beginning, thinking,
if they can find that
they'll find a beginning as an end to it all.
In the real world
of frozen water lines,
dirty snow three days after,
sorrow begets sorrow,
where the ending is supposed to be.
Standing in your doorway's frame
you are unbounded, eternal.
you too have questions.
You wonder about your soul.
Scientists never wonder about souls,
but you do, deep down.
Although it's an un-provable non-entity,
and what can't be confirmed
keeps us within ourselves.

|I've spent a lot of time staring at the dark skies always hoping for a shooting star. I do wonder about the soul, mine, humanity's and even animals. I think my dogs have a soul too, probably more honorable than mine. Patrick|

|"Open the door and stand in it exposed" -- excellent advice but at times, hard to follow. (The picture you've chosen fits perfectly and beautifully with the title.)

|Much to ponder here. Of particular note for this reader was the idea of: "...stand in its exposed..." where I found myself avoiding the obvious cast to the sky and instead dwelled on the idea of the threshold suspended above the sky, beyond the beyond, allowing one to teeter on its edge and peer back toward the dot of "I"inviting the powers of ten phenomena to play out, putting me in my proper place of the speck I am. Very comforting, given societal ignorance often chooses to inflate us with hubristic nonsense.|
