All in good time for this blog, Marc Latham created his latest Folding Mirror poem yesterday, and posted it on fmpoetry.wordpress.com
Hi, it’s William Wolfsworth, poetry correspondent at the Greenygrey inspired by legendary Romantic poet William Wordsworth. Here’s the latest poem, and it’s followed by the latest reflection from Marc’s 242 Mirror Poems and Reflections book.
Winding Between, Two Roads
where was the wind
had it already inspired
thoughts, dreams, wonder
riding the magic, blades green grass
tribal, dance, writing
other planets have breeze
is their reaction poetry
Reflection 8 in Marc’s 242 Mirror Poems and Reflections mirrored Orbital Perceptions, which was about how we usually make sense of the world from our limited sight and knowledge; usually forgetting the massive scale of the universe, and what we don’t see beyond our personal life and experiences.
Like many reflections in the book, you get two or three for one, with this one containing a little poem and a little philosophy. Here it is:
The doors of perception
should not be an obsession.
They will open in time
without such a steep climb.
There is little smaller and more insignificant in space than our planet.
There are few things on our planet that last less time than a single life.
There is little more significant to us than our lifetime in our place in space.
