BP: Haiku Dialogue–Doorknobs

The Haiku Foundation’s weekly column, Haiku Dialogue, is published on Wednesdays. The prompt for this ongoing series: Door to Door was doorknob. There were so many good haiku written on the theme, and this pedometer geek poet is pleased that K.J. Munro selected one of mine. It is as follows:

antique doorknob

the skeletons

in her closet

~Nancy Brady, 2021

To read all the haiku on the prompt, check out Haiku Dialogue at https://thehaikufoundation.org. Next week’s prompt is doormat, and up to two unpublished haiku on the theme can be submitted until midnight Pacific Daylight Time, Saturday May 15, 2021.

About pedometergeek

A pharmacist by profession, a haiku poet by nature, I read and write. I have a book of haiku, Ohayo Haiku, and another somewhat alternative haiku book, Three Breaths, but write other genres. I also read...lots of novels! My favorite is, and remains, Ayn Rand's Atlas Shrugged but I am also a big Harry Potter fan. I truly am a pedometer geek strapping on my pedometer as soon as I awaken.

    Reminds me of my first home. For a long time I kept the old front door lock set. But I finally gifted it to someone who had an old home. I still have some odd keys and I may even have a skeleton key!

    Oh… the memories…of closets and old chests in the attic! 😀

  2. My paternal grandma got me started collecting keys when I was about 8-10 years old. Several of them were skeleton keys; I always thought it would be cool to have a door that could be opened with one of them. While I don’t actively collect them any more, I don’t throw any keys away. I am never quite sure if whatever the key is for, and that I might need it sometime in the future. Silly, I know. 😉 ~nan
