Open

Perhaps you fear

that keeping open

will expose

you to harm:

your softness vulnerable

to the crushing claws of  grief and loss.

Or maybe the opening

allows something dear

to escape from you–

winging away.

But perhaps what is open

makes a window

onto heaven?

And light filters

through you and around

in unimaginable

delight and

hope?
