Reflection


You turned your back,
And the whole world
Disappeared from view,
Its purpose suddenly faded
In sepia-tinted memories.

You walked away,
And I saw myself alone
Rooted in unforgiving earth,
A diminished spirit,
Resistant to forward motion.

I turned inside
To look beyond illusion
Searching for my connection;
The glow of inner knowing
Reflected back to me in love.

I now stand tall
To view beyond the clearing
A universe possible and true;
The mirror of my heart
No longer shadowed by you.

Some shows ... even if we try to divide them, they are always a whole for us, because our mind is able to create "the show"...
Fine place and eye and heart, friend!
