Open the door


Go and open the door. 

If there’s a fog

It will clear.

Go and open the door.

Even if there’s only

The darkness ticking,

Even if there’s only

The hollow wind,

even if


is there,

go and open the door.

at least

there’ll be

a draught.

– from The Door, by Miroslav Holub

I took this photo as part of #fmsphotoaday by Fat Mum Slim. The prompt was: Lines and, when I looked at my photo, it reminded me of one of my favourite Holub poems. Here‘s how to play #fmsphotoaday. I’m posting my photos on my Instagram feed.

I find that photo-a-day projects can be a really helpful and easy way to make a moment in my currently very hectic life for an out-breath. It’s a reminder to slow down and look at the world around me. And the photo prompts often end up feeding into my writing in some way… Do you take photos?
