The Message in the Mirror #NWCU #ghosts #poetry

What voices do you hear when you look in the mirror?


She walked into a shop

steeped  in another era

scents  of old

ancient things from there

***

Up in a loft

she saw an ivory mirror

she held it’s loveliness

tell me what did she hear?

***

It was a voice

with an accent sublime

young and clear

from another time

***

Are you talking to me?

I hear you my dear

the young voice queries

please come a little near

***

Where is the woman?

no one but me

looking around

where can she be?

***

Then just as sweetly

she gave me a message

must be for others

what is the passage?

***

Tell them I love them

tell them I’m here

tell them I’m waiting

give them love and cheer

***

Who do I tell?

can’t you be clearer

now she was gone

the lady in the mirror

This (archived) poem is prompted by this week’s Wednesday Wake Up Call at New World Creative Union. We are asked to reflect on our ancestors. The prose is fictional but inspired by a mirror and a memory.

Thank you for visiting Moondustwriter. One of the many exciting things I've had the honor of doing is writing and publishing in multiple genres (including education) in E. African for E. Africa. As a writer, it is a thrill to write for children (on all continents) who want to learn. I've been part of the blogging community for more than 13 years. Some old timers may remember the award winning (2011 Twitter Shorty ) blog community - One Stop Poetry. I was the co-producer of that fast growing blog community. I am a published writer, poet, artist and photographer. I have written, as well as edited, for periodicals, radio, blogs and fellow writers. There are many facets to this moon - my joy is in meeting you!
