Threshold Guardians

Thresholds are
Between places of
Not coming or going.
Crossing a Threshold
A ritual act.

Doors keep
Worlds apart
To keep in and to keep out.
Before from after
The In-between secure

Doors have Gods
Janus of Two Heads guards the Out and the In
Cardea of the Door stands firm
Limentius of the Threshold stands firm
Portunus of the Portal holds the key

Guardians have
Sacred obligations.
Each demands
A reason for opening
A reason for closing

Forculus of the Passage
The Guide through
The Threshold
Coming in and
Going out
