Mirror Poem Celebrating New Spring Green Wind

Marc Latham’s new Folding Mirror poem was inspired by looking at greenery swaying in the divide between two roads; lit by sun shining through clouds to create warm spring air.

Mirror Poem

The poem echoes one of his earliest Folding Mirror poems, created after seeing a similar scene in a field of barley, and posted on fmpoetry five years ago this month (available from link above, or by searching field barley).

Cihuatecayoti was chosen out of the many world wind gods as it mirrored Cinderella the most.

Winding Between, Two Roads

where was the wind
before now
had it already inspired
thoughts, dreams, wonder
tender hearts
Cihuatecayoti remembered
mind refreshed

riding the magic, blades green grass

march awoken
Cinderellas released
captivity ceased
tribal, dance, writing
other planets have breeze
similar chemicals
is their reaction poetry

Mirror Poem Imagines Animals from Insects

Marc Latham’s latest Folding Mirror poem was inspired by watching the insect world, which resembles the animal world in many ways.

Animal and Insect Comparison Poem

Worms, beetles and ants all have great qualities and can be very interesting, although it is usually from a collective intelligence built into their evolved genome.

They are anyway very valuable, as all life is precious in its own right, and they can be beneficial to humanity through the Earth we share.

Wander the World, Insects and Imagination

air safari
feeling barmy
looks like a lion
resembles a rhino
acts as if an anaconda

500 feet above animals, insects underneath by five

worm at one with world
beetle a battler
ant acts all organised
returning reality
grounded humanity

Today we have a new Folding Mirror poem by Marc Latham, which was inspired by a wispy morning sight, and memories from the Nepalese Himalayas a couple of years ago.  Enjoy!
Flight of Imagination Returns to Memory Destination
sky silk illuminated by dawn rays
diving, falling, dancing, wrapping
over tidal wave of slate surf
travelling by light, flying on imagination
thousands of miles into the past
hiking, climbing, being, observing
powder snow swirl off sunset  peaks
