Water Reflection

My mirror turns

Desiring to reflect the truth

Craving the reality

For this, it yearns.


My heart yearns

Wanting to reflect light

Seeking the sun

For this, my heart turns


My shadow yanks

Wants me filled with pride

Seeks its satisfaction

On this, it banks


Shadow and light

Seemingly in conflict

Wanting to win

But there truly is no fight


From the shadow

The light is born

Darkness brightens the sun

Increases its glow.

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.
