Mirror Poem Book Reflections 6-10

Ten reflections from 242 Mirror Poems and Reflections are up on the Writing and Poetry blog now, so here’s reflections 6-10 after 1-5 were posted here previously:

The book’s available from Amazon for under £3 and under $6, and lots of other currencies for the equivalent prices; and Smashwords and other ebook readers for much less.

Reflection 6 mirrored See Below Sea:

Although inspired by nature, the iceberg of this poem is a metaphor for the human psyche.

As it is only an iceberg’s tip visible above the surface, most people only have a little of their personality, experiences and thoughts on show in society at any one time.

Reflection 7 mirrored
 I Am What You See
But You Are Not Me
Six Billion + of You
Myself – Only a Few

As travel is supposed to change people, it changes words and sentences too. What is meant by the communicator is often changed through relay: whether it is a spoken conversation amongst friends, or a person making a public statement.

Reflection 8  was a double reflection of Orbital Perceptions:

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.

Reflection 9 mirrored Quality Words are like
Koala(ity) on a Eucalyptus Tree at Sunset.

Is there time to think
before talking
in modern society,
where everything is instant,
silence is belligerent
and noise is magnificent.

Politicians still try to do it,
play for time
get answers to mind
see the interview through
hide the reality
reveal nothing on telly.

Reflection 10 mirrored Driving Through The Desert

In the void between life and death
that’s where I like to be.
Flying in space beyond sight
of reality and mortality.
But the flight is finite,
and the return can be rocky.

Poetry Reflection on Modern Society and Political Speech

Hi, it’s William Wolfsworth, poetry correspondent at the Greenygrey, inspired by legendary Romantic poet William Wordsworth. There’s no new poems to import and report from the fmpoetry world this week I’m afraid, but that doesn’t mean we don’t have time for reflection.

Modern Politics and Society Poetry Reflection 

Phascolarctos cinereus Koala eating eucalyptus...

Reflection 9 reflected the Folding Mirror poem Quality Words are like
Koala(ity) on a Eucalyptus Tree at Sunset.

The reflection comments on the changes in modern technology that has created a 24-hours news and media world; and a desire for instant information in society.

Politicians have had to adapt to this change, and this has perhaps caused a lowering in political dialogue, as politicians seek to avoid saying something that could be considered negative, and try to talk in soundbites created to achieve good instant media headlines.

Is there time to think
before talking
in modern society,
where everything is instant,
silence is belligerent
and noise is magnificent.

Politicians still try to do it,
play for time
get answers to mind
see the interview through
hide the reality
reveal nothing on telly.

Apple Scales Reminder of Unbalanced Fruit Brandwave

Hi, it’s Greenygrey. I think Andy Wolfhol is off creating something extraordinary, because he’s nowhere to be seen. I was going to delegate this job to him, but he did such a good job introducing Marc Latham’s latest Folding Mirror poem that we’ll overlook this artistic license.

Victoria Ivanova Art of Greenygrey Balance

In fact, it was while at the fmpoetry wordpress site that I first had the idea for this job, after seeing the art of Victoria Ivanova on the emorfes wordpress site.

I was captivated at once, after seeing the greenygrey scales with a pair of apples and a mirror image on them.

Then I saw the Pear of Dorian Gray, which reminded me of an idea I’d recently had, about having a Greenygrey fruit communication brand, what with there already being apple, blackberry, orange etc.

As I’m like a conjoined pair, that has recently been separated, I’d thought of Pear. I just google searched it, and there is already a Pear Communications anyway.

So, to make up for that disappointment, I thought I’d create a new poem, which I do believe is the first full Greenygrey poetry production since Grey set the poetry world alight with its seventy solo literary nonsense classics in its now available at Amazon for Winter Solstice Christmas epic classic Werewolf of Oz: Fantasy Travel by Google Maps. Enjoy!

The Pear of Dorian Gray
is not moi, Greenygrey
for we are one once again
and not a brand of communication.
