Rain Mirror

with 8 comments

contemplation river

My mirror watches rain
It splashes out my reflection
As that reflected meets that outside the mirror

Fingers dance in mirror movements
Reflection and I yawn,
We sing, we commune to find out
Who is real
I or reflection
I or the rain
The rain or myself

Rain dances down the mirror
I see the butterfly flower tree outside the window
The green tree frog suctioned to the window
I declare “I am the real
You are the reflected”

My reflection takes my words and processes them
Says nothing but hears the rain
Smells the rain, longs to touch the rain

Mirror rain, reflect raindrops
Raindrops reflect rain mirror
Rain watches mirror my-self.

  1. Wow – I haven’t read the mirror exercise, but it definitely must force you to get below the surface – everything here is so fresh! Very nice photo, too, I like all the color & movement…

  3. The rhythm of this poem actually sounds like rain falling. Well done, Pearlz.

  4. Agreed, Pearlz, the rhythm is organic and natural and the image is just gorgeous.

  5. It is a joy to be close to nature and to see oneself within it’s reflections.

  8. Being able to pronounce that you are real is a rich reward from watching the rain mirror.
