Michael's Chronicles: Windows and Doors


Michael Thiele is a woodsmith who makes musical instruments and playable furniture. He spends most of his life either in the shop or out on the road buying wood and selling his work at craft shows. In recent years, his travels have begun to inspire his own writing, so he sends me his thoughts.

Windows and Doors

Stop. Reflect.
Do we not view the journey
Through momentary apertures?
Through windows and doors?

We cannot freeze time
There are no “good old days”
Just fond memories
Of what once was

Kebmo was right
We’re victims of comfort
Teased memory
Becomes truth, true or not

If only…………
You know what is said 
Of hindsight
Woulda coulda shoulda

I’ll take now
And think of it later
Sometime when I need
A good laugh

What did I step in?
What didn’t get me?
What’s worse in the end
Wondering or knowing?

Isn’t it much
About intentions?
Do I stand at the window
Or walk through the door?
