Is a room a room if it has no door?
Do many windows make it less, or more?
We’ve rooms for cooking, dining, sleeping—
unkempt or well kept, rooms are meant for keeping
something in or something out—
What is your room all about?
Lift those windows, throw the doors wide
better yet, just get outside.
Venture beyond walls, an open expansion
get out, go on, explore your many mansions.
It’s still Tuesday Poetics over at the D’Verse Pub for poets, and Laura Bloomsbury still says, “For today’s poetry prompt I’m asking us to conjure a room or rooms in the literal, functional, metaphorical, imaginary, and/or fantastical sense.”
This is my second take on the prompt, as I was really taken by the prompt. P.S., I am writing in my favorite room, the one the birds and other little critters so generously share with me.
