Inspired by the reflections seen in the water droplets.

Faceless reflection once fair as a flower is all the eye can see now ghostly hollow we choked then swallowed the darkness we can be Daunted we are we driven still to find a defining face forming familiarity’s found to follow humanity’s trace Through glassy eyes of tears like rain our character lines have faded Let our colours emerge from our darkest hour Let us not stay shaded!

"This too shall pass," As long as this old world keeps spinning at some point the darkness will always be chased away by the light. Wonderful to see you writing again Jeannie.

It’s hard to find inspiration amongst ashes. It’s 100 degrees, the air is thick with soot and the sky is as orange as Trumps face. Now is the time, before we suffocate, for that magnificent spirited phoenix to rise, unless of course it too has been caged like a child at the border between realities. Good to hear from you Daniel. Like the picture? I didn’t see the reflections at first but once I did, I was inspired.

Thank you. I was inspired by the picture. We sometimes see reflections of ourselves in unexpected ways. Like it or not, we’re all in the picture.
