My Hopes, Memories and Dreams

An Open Door


Friends blow in

Their warm words


the skin


Whispers of kindness

Chasing the shadows


Past doubts

That linger

  1. Ah, those kind of friends are the best!

    Lovely verse, lovely imagery. I can almost feel the caress of kindness against my own tight skin.

    Blessings to you, Colleen.

  2. I was just here, we must have just passed clicks and whispers through the airwaves. Beautiful and soft and warm. The kind you hug and keep close.

    these images…oh….
    both those of your sweet sweet words
    and that great picture

    Just opened me wide up. Have had so much doubt lately. And that’s so true. Such simple, easy words can dispel. Thank You for this…and Oh! To dive through that door! Cheers and Namaste. 🙂

    • Glad you found my words inviting Bliss. I have just reconnected with an old friend through Facebook (you gotta love it !) who knew me as a child but was an adult himself. His insights into my strengths and challenges then and now have just made me cry with joy. It’s the first experience of someone providing a window into that world long ago that I’ve ever encountered. So somtimes we may think the door is well and truly closed, and then with a rush of warmth, a friend steps through like those times 20 years ago were just yesterday !

  9. this reminds me of several friends – you make me feel them brush in – like the open door with this poem – really a favorite with the spacing that lets us pause and go slowly to enjoy this one.

  10. Friends such as those are like a cool change coming through on a hot day. Their presence is a comfort and a relief!

    • Yes that’s another lovely way to express the comfort friends can give Selma.

  11. “A feast of friends, alive! she cried, waiting for me outside..” Jim Morrison.

    I’m a lateral thinker, you know, friends & doors.

    Often, all we need is a little human contact, a smile, a joke or different perspective can help the sunlight peep through the curtains.
