Gateway

Bending but inviting,
the gates of neither
heaven nor hell
but beauty and
discovery, celebrating
death through bounteous life
that grows, burns and re-grows
in the endless cycle
of whispering trees.
They’re calling me,
Walk through,
to find
what I might see
at the top
of that hill, braving
injury and ruin
to climb
if I’m daring enough
to see the other side
of the summit
quiet in the morning fog.
