A Door Closes, A Window Opens*

Silence roared,
followed
by the slamming
of a door.  The room
was stifling until
an open window
let a fresh breeze in.
Such is the perfect time
to be remembering:
For every exit
that demands its way,
an entry opens
on a brand new day.

The original quote, which is attributed to Alexander Graham Bell, is as follows:

“When one door closes, another opens; but we often look so long and so regretfully upon the closed door that we do not see the one which has opened for us.”

    “I know thy works. Behold, I have set before thee an open door, and no man can shut it. For thou hast a little strength, and hast kept My Word, and hast not denied My name…Revelation 3:8

    I enjoyed your poem so much that I almost hate to say that the title reminds me of a line by Groucho Marx: “Love flies out the door when money comes innuendo.”
