Images II

by Hellon   Dec 4, 2018


the crack found its home
just on the edge - so fragile


as the image
became divided
I wondered

who was the most frangible;
the crack, the mirror
or was it the reflection

    Reflection (consequences) for sure.

    This would work better as one poem, simply as it’s a direct continuation - not a ‘spiritual sequel’ :) having said that, I did enjoy this query into the idea of perception!

    A Persian verse:
    A girl came across herself
    in the water:
    Beauty has multiplied.

    I missed this poems predecessor, but having read the two together now I can say that this brilliant. Mirrors, broken or otherwise, have long been a symbol for self reflection in society.

    I think the answer to the question posed in this instance is the mirror; to brittle to handle the reflection, and cracking from the strain. You Hellon, are anything but brittle.
