an open door
like a doorbell
Submitted as part of “National/Global Poetry Writing Month” (#NaPoWriMo #GloPoWriMo).
Today’s prompt: Day Twenty-Two: “This prompt … has the beauty of simplicity – but also the problems of simplicity, in that you really can’t sum up a culture in a single image or item, and you risk cliché if you try…. Following Poets & Writers’ prompt, today I’d like to challenge you to write a poem … underscores the strength of metonymy in poetry … that invokes a specific object as a symbol of a particular time, era, or place.”
