Just as the night sky falls upon me,
there's a gentle tap at the door.
Do I dare answer that?
For a brief moment it stops.
Only to begin again with great force and urgency.
My chest tightens and my hand trembles,
as I fumble for the key.
With great hesitancy, I pull back.
I'm met with resistance and a gentle nudge.
I give in.
The door slowly opens.
My eyes begin to focus from their blurred state.
I gaze into the distance.
Such a sight to behold.
The twinkling stars begin to frolic and
dance in the night sky.
A ring of light is cast from the moon.
It radiates the hillside,
illuminating me in a blanket of light.
I am at peace.
Surrounded by the vastness of our Universe,
I soon realize there was no one at the door.
But a voice, offering guidance to my life's purpose.
For I've not unlocked an ordinary door.
This door leads to a world rich in beautiful synchronicities
and amazing life lessons to be learned.
As I begin to walk back, I pause as I look one last time
into the night sky.
I'm grateful for the key.
