SUDDENLY I THOUGHT

suddenly I thought
who am I--
meeting in the mirror,
my sanity tested:
I was not who I am

    if my works did exactly what you did and said in the reply to me, what a gift you have given me in the thoughts you expressed. Having been a journalist and editor, I love it when the reader puts themselves into my works and makes it their own. If I send out a poem and it is not changed, I have failed and the work has failed. Heck, just one grain of salt? Give me the entire shaker LOL. Thank you much for your valued opinion, Bob always, sock sock sock it to me, I love your opinions.

    I've had the thoughts you are thinking and I stay away from mirrors for that reason. I believe the second part could be strengthened by verbalizing what testing agent met sanity in the mirror? Or perhaps sanity was the agent acting upon ??? Just a thought which you inspired by this insightful tanka. Take it with a grain of salt.
