An open and shut case…

Staring at this photograph, 
I’m struck by the irony: 
The larger doors are open, 
But the smaller door is locked… 
My first response is that old saying, 
About locking the barn door 
 After the horses have been stolen. 
But it also speaks to me 
Of the sometimes foolish ways 
 We protect our hearts, 
 Ignoring larger vulnerabilities, 
And, at the same time, 
Of the ways we can obsess over small details 
 While ignoring the bigger picture. 
What is it that you see?
