Glass and Mirrors



Mirrors

Direction
To keep you in the right track.
To keep you safe.

Reflection

may give you a realization
of yourself
and things around you...
evaluate,
assess and reassess,
then think and decide.

Glass
maybe a beauty
may it be plain or designed;
but even not broken
it is a danger.

  6. Thank you for stopping by my kitchen (yes, it's messy as always)! Glass is such a powerful metaphor. So many ways it can splinter and illuminate. A really interesting approach to this image.

  20. cool take onthis prompt - I like the grouping of ideas.

  21. I like the cyclical nature of your trilogy, with "glass" possibly having a double meaning, taking us back to the idea of looking-glass and mirror.
    Good take on the prompt, your poems pick up on the multiplicity of images in the photo!

  22. There's more depth to this than at first appears. My sort of poem.
