I Leave the Door Open...

Author:

Freelance writer and Certified NLP coach, I lose and find myself in the worlds of words and Nature.

i-leave-the-door-open

I leave the door open…..

I leave the door open,

for something new to touch my being.

For fantastic expressions,

love uninhibited.

For experiences so ordinary

that they seem beyond the ordinary

and touch the core of my being.

To not get caught in the mundane,

to transform the mundane into the extraordinary

an alchemist to become

to transform ordinary into extraordinary.

To love like I never have

Without tags, frills, attachment, entanglement

And thereby touch the core of my being.


P.S A poem I wrote as an idealist 15-year-old. Felt very amused with the lack of form, nevertheless felt like sharing.
