|Rooms by the Sea, 1951 by Edward Hopper|
Which door will we open wide so
humans will reveal their faces?
Simple doorways are all we need
to imagine better places.
The lucky ones, those not locked in,
are leaning out the doorways now
gathering cloud and clay and life
to build what we don’t know how.
Recipes, patterns and blueprints
won't help us. Our senses tell us
“Lean further than ever before,
and trust in your inner voices.”
What will we find? What will we make?
We know little before we start.
But, O, the freedom is thrilling!
It freshens and reshapes our hearts.
