Glint

Glint

A Poem by Ana B.

The mirror of my soul…is it in a book captured?

Maybe a song or maybe a dance…

Or maybe it’s in this art that I’ve unknowingly mastered

To steal the lingering shadows with only a glance…

 

Yet I cannot defy the rules of the universe…

What seems to disappear just goes to some other place

Our truth sometimes seeming nothing but the obverse

Making me lie with a straight face…

 

So when in a room full of light, a shadow shimmers

We can barely catch it with our glance…

That way our souls have infinite mirrors

Their reflections walking in defiance

 

Aching for the sky that is starless

The shadows are watching coldly from the distance

Yet even in a room full of darkness

A glint of light is enough to make the difference…

There is always hope that never subsides, There is always good just as evil. I enjoyed the first stanza spectacular in the wording, loved it.

Thank you very much Robert.
the mirror of your soul, that really gets me straight to the heart, i always see the soul as a mirror, a reflection of the life we live, it collects our lives and stores them away till the time comes when we have to see our deeds and reflect on our life lived, that come when we see that glint of light and the tunnel awaits to take us back home, heaven bound, you got me thinking overtime again Ana but that's because I love your work, thank you :)

Thank you very much Sereena :)
I never have seen a soul or the mirror of a soul, still searching and wondering about where I should find it. Maybe you gave me that glint of light that will make it possible to look further, deeper into myself. Thank you for that and for this excellent poem, Ana. :) Rudi
