O: Ostiary #AtoZChallenge



Ostiary: Door-keeper, servant at the entrance of a building.

waking in a dream

I tiptoe into moonlight

your door stands ajar

spilling yellow upon my feet

trembling, my hand reaches

out and falls in defeat

as the ostiary thunders:

“your exile is incomplete.”

    Good job with the word pictures. I especially like the tip-toeing into the moonlight.
