What are you waiting for? Don't be a chicken! Go for it!!! **laughs out loud** Just kidding
"here in the paths of shade and shadow,
the guardians of the unfound door stand.
offering warnings and welcomes
a quandary of contradictions."
Knowledge is power. "With great power comes great responsibility." ~Stan Lee. This is what came to me when reading the lines you wrote above. I really loved the way you put "offering warnings and welcomes." You really brought out the moment of indecision/hesitation very well. The unknown can be alluring and scary at the same time. To be honest, it seemed as if you were writing more from a place of experience.
I think the guardians were intriguing. I don't know how you see them, but for me I think on a subconscious level they are deeper, more elusive manifestations of ourselves. I think they all reside within us.
I enjoyed the depth of your writing. I think it may speak differently to each individual. I can't help but feel I have not grasped it entirely despite having read it about four times. Blessings! Have a good day.
The trees reach out as silent witnesses always willing to listen to your troubled heart. Nature offers her ears to anyone who speaks into the omnipotant silence. There are places that wait for you. You are loved....you are wanted....you are cared for. You are not alone.....you are not alone.....you have never been alone.
