The Mirror Image

      The Mirror Image
When you look at the mirror
what do you see, a reflection
of yourself, it looks like you
and mimmicks your movements
but there is many real differences
firstly it has no life as we know it
and the image is an opposite to
yourself, the same only different
it has no intelligence and is a 
prisoner in glass form but it
always gives you a true image
of yourself, it is akin to a shadow
that comes out during the day
and reflects at night by the light
of a street lamp. It is an aura that
will always be with you through life.

    Hi Donna, I am pleased you liked this poem a sequel to The Shadow, a dark reflection that comes out during night and in sunlight, I followed it then with The Mirror Image, you can see a similar connection , thank you for your kind comments Donna. John
