K is for Key

I love keys. So it is no wonder that is the 'K' word I gravitated to today.

The Key's Mystery

The key itself is simple
rusted iron on woven cord
without its lock
it is nothing

It may open a chest
left hidden by pirates
or unlock a gate
to an alien world

Perhaps it locks
a mermaid's diary
or the chains that bind
a wolf at full moon

It could be the key
to a dungeon cell
or the way to unlock
a damsel's heart

Most likely it matched
a plain house door
but until the lock is found
it holds everything to me

I really like your very imaginative way for an otherwise ordinary think - you've made it extraordinary, great job!
