A Poem by Roxanne Hoffman

the past
by Roxanne Hoffman
a door
closed behind us
but there to reenter
unlocked by way of memories
and dreams
for some
pandora's box
filled with goblins and ghosts
for others like a treasure chest
of gold
Roxanne will be appearing at The Gazebo on July 20th.

This is a wonderful example of plumbing the depths of a single word. it might have taken many moons to peel back all the layers of paint and veneer to reveal the poignancy of the "puerta".
