April 17 On the Hill


Recommended Posts

On the Hill

The house is old
and sprawls 
in angular arrangement.
A maze of managed moments
and kept separate.
Some doors are closed and locked
but I have no need to revisit them,
others just barely cracked
inviting curiosity.
Stairs lead upward though
I have yet to climb them.
I know this house.
I've been here many times,
sometimes to explore,
sometimes to rest.
Today I came to close
one door and open another.

Through L13 the feeling was as though the speaker had been there before though she wasn't quite at home. The note re the prompt/dreamscape clarified things. (I'm glad the note was at the end.)
