Other Doors


Stop and listen

Peace is a place I cannot find so often

not as often as I would like.

Like a wayward child my mind has its own agendas

Yet like a child I can take its hand

And draw it upon my knee to stop

Just for a while and to listen intently

To the peace of silence and love.




From haiku to hefty memoirs - poems, stories and essays that break through the bullshit. Looking for pieces that go far beyond cliché to uncover a new realm of possibilities. Other Doors features writing that leaves the reader with genuine congenital reactions.
