This Poem

This poem, a sad melody, fills me with recognition.  Where to begin, what to say?

Standing before the door, you go first. 

Which door to open, which door to close?

One door at a time.  Like in “Mystery Date” open the same door and another choice appears.

Too many beginnings. 

This poem is a warning; stop, breathe, take a step back.  Pick at the thread on the sweater.

Doors swing open and shut.  Sweaters unravel.

Take a step in. Pick up a stitch.

Begin again.
