Writers Island prompt #25 Threshold

Doorway in Chaco CanyonWriter’s Island #25 Threshold


It is a promise

Shining bright

Beckoning to you

Encouraging just one step

You’ve had an idea

Now you must step through

The threshold

To make your idea something real

And that real thing

Is the goal

You stand in the middle of time

Stand too long

You will stand in the past

That step through the threshold

Is always for the first time

And always something new

The only promise

Is that it will be something different

A place your have never been

Something you have never seen
