A Mirror's Face

Written by: Gail Angel Doyle

A Mirror’s Face Beyond a mirror’s face Remains a reflection of a soul’s trace Into a world of images of the unknown Or perhaps a world we once have known A mirror’s face Show’s a mystery of a particular place Leaving one to wonder what they see Perhaps phantoms that are trapped wanting to be set free Or just a left over residue of their imprints once there In journeys of their lives once lived reflected in its glare Reflected in a mirror’s face Showing residual past images of an old time and place Still, a mirror holds a mystery To all that we dream and see Why does it capture a world left in disquise? To reflect its existence into our eyes
