Re-Opening – A Chiasm

silent…

sorrow…

lonely…

empty…

stagnant…

dark…

closed…

A key turns in the lock

…A sign saying “OPEN” is placed in the window

…one by one, switches are flipped and the room is flooded with light

…the open door allows a gentle breeze to refresh the atmosphere

…slowly, people – young, old, male, female – enter in

…an unmistakable sense of camaraderie fills the place

…smiles of joy at friendships rekindled are seen throughout the room

…and perhaps best of all – the sounds of conversation, laughter, singing and poetry

~~

chiasm (or chiasmus) for dVerse Open Link Night.  Poem inspired by the fact that I’m glad the pub has re-opened!
