Carrying the Mirror

Lives in Manhattan


Works on wall street


Never left her fantasy


Carries the mirror everywhere


Is married to the rabbit


Lives between two worlds

I have been writing all my life but for the most part, it has been a secret. My parents did not believe writing was a good way to earn money so I hid my poems. Then one day, I wanted to comment on an essay that a friend had written and found myself with a blog. That quiet whisper inside said, "You can write your poetry and no one will ever know.". I knew nothing of followers and the like at that time. So, here I am trying to learn my craft and enjoying every moment of it. My personal details are, I'm 57, married for 39 years, have one grown son who is God's gift to us and last but not least at all, I'm a Baha'i which basically means that I love all humanity.

  1. (flashback) I looked at the lady in the picture as some creation from an andy warhol print, nyc gauche, and then the movie title came back to me, “Alice doesn’t live here anymore”

  2. This was lovely clever Carol! So happy to see you join us again!

    I read the comments with Melinda, that’s why prompts stretch your writing abilities sometimes I’ve HATED them and found it brought some cool things out of me anyway.

    Have a great week!
