What Lies in the Mirror? #magpietales #poetry

Look into a reflection – you might see truth you might see lies

I looked upon the reflective source of yesterday

 daring not enter my gaze too deep

for the closer I wandered in my mind

the more one I would become with said image

a mere reflection “no”

for there I see you

you the one who feigned connection

believing you as a part of me

told me things I longed to hear

whispers long in the night

 into my lonely ear

caused longing for something that was never

and like a fool I harkened to a voice

fractual promises never granted

realizing my blunder

I inserted into the mirror

my empty heart

whether from love or naught

left said reflection in your hands

do not believe the smile is for you

This piece of prose is a late offering to the respected hostess of Magpie Tales – Tess Kincaid where weekly she gives writers a prompt challenge.

Faith & Entropy

Gud skaper noko nytt ved sitt Ord og sin Ande, vi kan ta imot det i tru og få oppleve at han gjer sitt verk med oss. Hans skaparkraft verkar konstuktivt i våre liv og skaper noko som er verdifullt for oss. Naturkreftene verkar nedebrytande, i fylgje entropilova, men Gud er Ånd og det som er født av hans Ande består. Jesu frelsesverk er fullbrakt og fullkome. Han er den siste Adam, som er ifrå himmelen og som for oss har vorte ei livgjevande ånd. Han gjev oss den Heilage Ande frå himmelen av berre nåde. Han gjev oss det evige livet.
