Reflection

I look at my reflection; through the mirror; dull gloomy eyes; frowning; messy hair; dry lips; shabby clothes; slightly wrinkled face; worn out self. And Who is this young girl? I’m seeing behind me; holding my husband’s hand; with a tiara on head; wearing a white frock ; with white veil; holding fresh bunch of flowers; Oh! That smile, spreads an aura of energy, who is she? framed in an old photograph; from the bedside table; turned toward me. Wrote for Juxtaposition Poetry Contest On 24 November 2020 Sponsored by Silent One Placed 2nd in the contest

Dear Silent One, Your contest was a great muse. Should I prepared a bit more, the writing would have been more pleasurable for me . However I'm happy to have a placement. :)Rasitha
