a poet’s words,
descriptive, humbling,
sometimes harsh

like a mirror
they reflect the poet's
inner world

yet,
the notion of reflection,
often rejected by the poet

look closely, poet,
do you not see your 
reflection staring back at you

scowl not, critic,
for you too are reflected
in your judgment

  1. I love getting your poems. Passed the last on to my girls. How are you both doing staying close to home I hope. It’s a good time to be productive. I’m trying to write everyday. Also doing some sewing. Nancy
