I am tapping on the door to possibilities, hoping there is something on the other side, hoping that I’ve chosen the right door until I remember there really isn’t such a thing as the wrong door. Not truly.
Doorways lead to possibilities and if we don’t go through them, well then, we don’t learn anything new.
What doorways are in front of you?
I am tapping
tapping on the door
hoping it will open
to find loving adventures
on the other side
but even if it doesn’t
I’ll know I tried
tried with an open heart
to see the other side.
OctPoWriMo is a poetry challenge for the month of October – 31 poems in 31 days. I created OctPoWriMo in 2012 and with the assistance of Julie Jordan Scott it took off. Every year she and I, and now others, post poetry prompts every day during October to encourage poets (even those that don’t consider themselves poets) from all over the world to play with their words, to write poetry, to read poetry, and to take their poetry to a deeper level.
Join us at OctPoWriMo and/or visit and support others that are playing with their words.
Writing Prompts: Are you walking through the door? Begin your sentence with I am, and see where it leads you.
Read. Dance. Write. Repeat.

“Sometimes poets write what we wish we could say, and they tell us what we need to know. The poems in Wild Woman Waking lead us to a place where we can proudly refuse to be “bent and broken”; instead, they document a journey to self-acceptance, peace, and understanding – where in a community of women, we celebrate and dance as Mud Women. We become women of spirit and keepers of our own keys.” ~Beth Camp
