Empty Mirrors

Empty Mirrors

Who stole the colored beads
from this kaleidoscope world?
Spinning around seeing no color,
relections of empty spaces,
seem to be the new order

Are they simply tarnished
crusted over from life given?
A mirrored world with no view,
lonliness the new axis,
where life has lost its hue

    Beyond reflection a world exists. A creative image you can't resist. Where love and kindness find a home. Reflective blindness inside a poem.

    Lonely sounding. So many poems I have read today sound lonely.

    Empty skies and empty mirrors to fill our lives with empty fears. The stars above are always there to let us know that God still cares. Not in the day, but in the night, is when they appear to shine their light. To give us pause to stop and look. At the daily lesson not in a book.

    Interesting to start with a question, unusual for poetry, but I really like it. Nice piece, well done.
