Mirror Reflection

There as I’m standing I sure see my reflection In a cold mirror On the wall across the way As light cascades down on it It does seem as though Stark and harsh in appearance The rugged mirror Pulls life in, pulsates some out A semblance of what it sees A gorgeous image If there is something pretty That presents itself In line with the great mirror Then life sees beauty as well We desire to see Life with a beautiful base Want for perfection I see me in the mirror So what do I make of it… What is it I truly see?
Russell Sivey

    Hi Rusty, I try to keep away from the things as they tell terrible lies! Haven't you noticed? Mirrors belong in the bottom of a fish pond. Can't imagine what I make of it.

    minds eye do see, old bugger is me, still a changing, from grub to butterfly, life's coming to an end, ever closing, relentless, the question is why? of Russell Sivey "Mirror Reflection" Don Johnson
