Here is the Writing Outside the Lines challenge prompt for the week of September 27th:

You come upon a blue door in a stone wall. What happens next?

Prologue: This week has been a struggle for me … not to find time to write, but to take time to write … this prompt or anything else. Personal demons are chasing me and unfortunately they have won some days and I have won others … right now it is a draw because you can never really fight your demons and win.


Blue Demons


Blue has always been my favorite color

from the clearest pale aqua to the

deep midnight sapphire blue


Blue comforts and consoles me

while at the same time

haunts me …


Sparkling blue sea water

Clear cold spring water

The artificial blue of a

man-made pool

all call my soul …

Reach out and comfort me

when life needs to be





Yet …


Those deep dark midnight blues

hide my demons…

My fears…

My nightmares…


I long to open this door

This beautiful turquoise door

And find that clear cold spring

That restores me and makes me whole

waiting for me on the other side




The fear that lives in midnight blue

Keeps me on the outside

Where it is safe in not knowing

what is on the other side

Feeling that the known at this

point is so much safer than

the unknown ever can and will be…
