“Woman Looking into Mirror” by Elizavella Designs

I chose to write a poem in the triquatrain form, which was created by Robert L. Huntsman.

Journey into the Mirror

Walking through a mirror’s door, vortex of what’s come before
Swirling twixt the times, the places, and the seasons
Depending on who you think you be, determines what you’ll sightsee
Drawn to the lights and darks of your life’s emotional beacons

Over a glass of pink chablis, you must agree to fearless inventory,
To see previews and plots, classics playing back so many reasons,
Highlights, romance, light and weighty, crappy and smutty debris
Heroines, dupes, buddies in roles you’ve played; betrayals, treasons

Images flash, each pregnant frame, so many births where you’re to blame —
And yet, amongst each rubbled screenplay, there shine bright and scattered pieces
Warm summer Sunday ecstasy, swirled across the marquee
Waiting there, kernels of grace from heaven’s theater, anchors amongst capricious sneezes.

Looking now you see your equal, will you both agree on the present’s sequel?
Will it be drama, romance, adventure, mystery – or horror’s screaming?
Will you be a villain, a red shirt, a lover, a banshee? A master, a slave, a trainee, a Gypsy?
Don’t lunge or fall with the you in the mirror; grow more kernels of grace’s feeling.

This week consider the concept of reflection. In a physical sense it happens when we look in the mirror, or when we see our reflection in shop windows as we pass by. Both can be equally scary!! But reflection can also be an internal process where we consider past and or present events in our lives and evaluate the impact, if any, they had on us, albeit character building or just life experience.  I invite you to go where the prompt takes you and I look forward to reading your responses.

      Thank you, Sadje 🙂 I think I’ll tweak it so the lines become more even but the message will stay the same.

  4. There is a lot that I don’t know about poetry, but I enjoy reading it when it is good. This read like a poem about the challenge of writing a book to me, and it was very insightful.
