San Francisco Shows Me Myself

A large toothy Chinese dragon spirits me away.
To lively San Francisco street with paper lanterns.
Trinkets of all shapes and forms. Smells wafting in
Reminding me of Sweet and Sour Chicken and Pepper Beef.

My mouth waters in anticipation of my next meal here.
A dragon! A child’s shrill voice screams. An old woman smiles.
I realize then it has not been my imagination.   I grin at the old
Woman, before I realize it is my reflection in a storefront window.

What a great write Caren, I was with you all the way, especially when you spied the old women in the window; I see one every morning when I look into my mirror and wonder who she is, Haha!

I am always shocked, for I never see myself like the mirror.

Don't feel bad, I never recognize myself anymore, either.

Always a surprise, but also a surprise every time I see my mother who should look 35.

San Francisco; the mirror, full reflection of yourself!

It truly does help you see things clearly. A terrific place.
