Poetry Prompt 34 – Doors

write a poem which features the opening and closing of doors

Today’s prompt is to write a poem which features the opening and closing of doors.

You might like to consider:

  • Should your doors be literal or metaphorical or both?
  • Should the doors symbolise something? What?
  • Should the doors form the major part of your poem or be incidental?
  • How can you use rhyme, rhythm and your choice of words to emphasise the opening and closing of doors?
  • Should you consider one set of doors or multiple?

Happy reading, happy writing -and if you do write, don’t forget to post your poem (in full or as a link) in the comments below so we can all enjoy it.

    Written almost immediately after your prompt was updated, but needed tonight to combine it with a picture:

      The image made it so it was worth the wait! What time do my prompts go live for you? I publish them between 5 and 6am but happy to move them to suit as I never attend to them until about 12 hours later (I schedule them the night before).

        That’s my actual bedroom door (although it has never been involved in one of those situations). The prompts come through at about 2pm, which if I get a chance to read them straight away, gives me a little thinking time. If they came through an hour or two earlier they would be a midday surprise and lunchtimes might become a little more interesting. That would make it a 4am scheduled time for you.
