The Image


A mirror seeks confession
From a hushed soul
A dilemma, perhaps depression
For whom the bells will toll

Envy, the evil of intent
In jealousy the devil dance’s to joy
A war rages when one is never content
But whom does it destroy?

The mirror does reveal
What a heart may feel
And time can never steal
If the image is true and real

oooh marina, i love this cryptic poem of dark ponderings...very good
take care, jm

 and you can say baby...
baby can I hold you tonight
maybe if told you the right words...
at the right time,
you'd be mine...
baby can I hold you tonight...

This is always the last person that you ask and always the hardest one to listen to.  Very well done.

Not to be funny Marina. . .but this is very *ahem* "Reflective". . .

And it shows me a whole other side of you. . . I like it. . .it's always hardest to ask those of the person in the mirror. . .

Wonderful, my friend. . .

Butterflie, thank you very much and you are exactly right.  I am so glad someone could interperate it so perfectly!

Sven, it would appear to me that you are shocked at all the sides of me!  What did you think I was just a pretty face!!!

 Fleeting World
"Thus shall ye think of all this fleeting world:
A star at dawn, a bubble in a stream;
A flash of lightning in a summer cloud,
A flickering lamp, a phantom, and a dream."
-from the Diamond Sutra, translated by : A. F. Price -- found in Teachings of The Buddha, edited by Jack Kornfield

Marina~
Nice glance into the looking glass.
This is pondering material.
I ponder.
