Never Closed

Shuttered windows did not


For all who lacked knew that

The door remained unlatched

The rusty locks, unfastened,

To let the needy enter

And rest their weary heads


Their huddled warmth

Steadfast in lieu of


Never closed from

The ancient inn.




For the dVerse poetry quadrille challenge: close

  1. I love this. Reminds me of “secret” places to stay on the gringo trail back when I was traveling. I had all these maps and notes of how to access places where the doors remained unlatched. Thanks for taking me back to some great days.
