When is a door not a door?

When is a door not a door?
When it’s ajar.

I never liked that riddle.
There’s no logic,
just a trick,
wordplay even the astute mind would have difficulty formulating from the question.

But it does lead me to what I want to say.
And I will speak plainly,
unlike that so called riddle.
I miss you.
Please visit me.
My door is always open.

  1. Makes me think of a comment my boyfriend made after my cat got skunked…”I may not smell good, but I sure can smell him!” I hope you get it…

  2. Loved the sequence of the poem! From a riddle to a message!

  3. You can fill a glass, but you can’t philadelphia

  4. I have always looked at the answer as The Door is no longer a door when it is not opened or closed to enter or leave. The door Ajar, allowing for entry without opening said door. The door is no longer serving its purpose, no longer a door. Simply put an obstacle. My doors are never locked but they are always closed. I like this piece. A very nice finishing touch.
