The Door Under the Stairs

Photo by Brandon Ellrich
A mysterious door found under the stairs,
A door of entrance or exit to where?

From the other side, no door can be seen,
Yet light shines through; what can this mean?

Smaller than a normal person would use,
Created for a purpose or just to confuse?

A portal of dimensions? I believe no such tall tales,
Yet the reason it’s there, my explanations fail.

Undiscovered for years, a hidden mystery,
And so it remains until I find the key.

Here is Alan’s response to this photo prompt:

Flash of lightning from under the door…
crash of thunder I cannot ignore…
Is he raising the dead
with a shock to the head?
I just heard a loud thump on the floor!
