the kitchen pantry has lately been on my mind and Dave's poem about cupboards was the last straw

behind closeted doors

people's cupboards and fridges
tell a curious tale of everything
some a cluttered obstacle course
others an impenetrable rainforest
some coyly veiling their secrets
others flamboyantly revealing
mysteries both shallow and deep
behind doors their treasures keep

The final couplet made me smile

JK Fisher
Such a symphony that determines the mind of man, music, and reality spun bits. Nothing needed, nothing shattered. Lift and share these words quietly, gently, and forever.

Proof positive that good poetry can be made from quotidian, domestic, everyday imagery. Well done.

Kathy Lockhart
how lovely this is to read and at the same time how truthfully revealing.
