No Need for Mirrors

No Need for Mirrors

A Poem by Neville Pettitt
"

dont try this at home folks

"
No Need for Mirrors
She never 
Looked in
Mirrors once
She thought 
She had no
Need of them

Then quite by
Chance a tiny
Flake of
Croissant 
Changed
Her mind
The way she
Walked
The way she
Smiled
The way she
Wore her hair
She now looks
To find herself
In windows
Puddles and
Mirrors
Everywhere

I would never have come to Jacob's or your conclusion about this poem. I read it several times before Jacob left his comment. That's why Men come from Mars and women from Venus. I had something else in mind altogether, but now can see where you are both coming from.

Seems like quite a narcissist ;P Hah, this actually reminds me Narcissus from greek mythology! Funny how little things change our perceptions about how we view ourselves.
Interesting write, N. :)

Thank you Cherrie for your visit & understanding.. I'm sure she is very pretty..... N
I see a beautiful woman glancing in the cafe restroom mirror, catching a glimpse of that dangling flake, maybe on her chin or between her teeth, forever committed to never walk in public again without a reflection. Another good poem to make one say “hmm.”

A flake of croissant? Hmmm...trying to figure this one out. Perhaps a gentleman bought her a croissant and shared it with her? Not sure of the exact scenario, but I liked trying to figure it out. Lydi**
