it is not so narrow.
if you simply ‘lift’ the latch,
if you’re unable to lift the latch,
there IS someone to lift it for you
the truth is ALL are welcome to enter
through this gate.
—You don’t have to DO anything
to gain access
—You don’t have to be a certain race
to pass through.
—Your religious background/affiliation
do not matter…
in truth—if you wish to leave
your beliefs at the gate’s entrance,
you can OR you can bring them through!
Because, what’s in your heart
is heard here.
Beyond the gate, the path is inclusive.
Sticks and stones are on the ground.
There they lay unless you pass a pond
and wish to toss a rock and gaze at
the circles growing wider and wider.
The sticks make great kindle for
evening campfires beneath stars…
glistening in a cascading black sea.
There is so much more to be said,
but, lift the latch—
it is open for all.
It may be a bit
Everyone can pass through.
