“When one door closes, another opens; but we often look so long and so regretfully upon the closed door that we do not see the one which has opened for us.”
Okay, you can disregard the rest of this quote. I really wanted to focus on our prompt #101 Opportunity. I think of this word as a chance toward reaching our goal, a position to prove ourselves, and the prospect towards success. I would love you to write a poem about one of your opportunities.
It can be in the past, present or future. If you want to share about the door, you can if you like. Did opportunity knock quietly or rap loudly for you? I can't wait to read about your windows!
