A Poem by Neville

Mirrored

 

Looking down


And outwards


I can just make out


Myself 


Reflected in the


Silver bevelled edges


Of an old discarded


Mirror


A soul suspended


Somewhere 


Just inside the


Gilt chamfered frame


Where 


Fractured light


Distorted images


And memories reside ..

Or You can mirror yourself on rainbows ❤️ that's another sad one dear N, and what a scene You've painted for us to see and feel, I doubt it's your imagination but You actually had that experience. I feel inspired now reflections and mirrors :)

Like looking at our reflection on a lake...
we can make it what we want...perfect as we'd like or as imperfect as we probably are. But in that fractured light, we can see our fractured selves.
Plath's "Mirror" indicated as much...there can be nothing wrong with the reflection, but we still don't like what we see.
Maybe we are looking inside ourselves rather than the surface...and that is what we do not like.

What a fine read on a glorious morning Neville. And what a beautiful soul that is too suspended in that gilt frame. Something so visually pleasing about bevelled mirrors. Got one in my hallway. Love the light it reflects. May those memories always be happy ones. Happy for fractured light to distort images as I grow older. Makes for a far more interesting reflection. Something too about old possessions, they often are of far greater sentimental value. Well, I think so.
