I sat by the river
Saw my reflection
Another moment
And a ripple formed
Blurring my image
Into many little waves

I looked at a mirror
Saw my reflection
Another moment
I tripped, it fell away
Breaking my image
Into a dozen pieces

You caught me though
Before I fell down so
I looked into your eyes
Surprised, I saw myself
Reflected in the irises
Saw me as I truly was
Reflected in your friendship

Poetry & writing are to me, a breath of fresh air in a life that is sometimes covered by the smoke of sorrow or self doubt. They also become the sweets I share to celebrate when life offers me a reason to. But most of all, they are to me, my life. For each word I write is a piece of my heart, a thought that just had to find its way into the world.
