Mirror Poem Reflections 26-30

Thirty-five reflections from 242 Mirror Poems and Reflections are on the Writing and Poetry blog now, so following on from reflections 1-5, reflections 6-10, reflections 11-15, reflections 16-20 and reflections 21-25 here’s reflections 26-30.

Reflection 26 mirrored Dying to Live, Living to Die:

Life is Like…

Life is like a journey on a neverending road,
you know you’ll never find out
the destination at the end,
but just try and learn along the way.

Life is like flying over a real rainbow,
you know you’ll never find
golden immortality at the bottom,
but just try and enjoy the journey.

Life is like a big night out,
you know that you’ll peak and tire
and not continue forever
but just try and make the most of it.

Reflection 27 mirrored Life Has More Meaning than Death:

Depression
is a state of mind
if you accept its normality
and accurate view
of the negative side
to the world cycle
that enters your life
then it’s not time
wasted.

Reflection 28 mirrored Y Green and Grey Go Together:

Reflection 28 (part 1)

‘by seeing Venus during the day while trekking in the Yorkshire Dales Three Peaks, alerted by the Sky at Night television programme; my first conscious sighting of a middle-of-the-day planet or star at the age of 46. It was on the same March 2012 trip that I took the 242 Mirror Poems cover photo.’

Reflection 28 (part 2)

The second half of the Reflection lightened the mood under a clear day and night sky with a previously unpublished comedy poem:

If the sheepdogs tell great jokes
and livestock like to clown around
under a smiling sun and moon
I want to go to the funny farm.

Reflection 29 mirrored I Can See Through You, Why Don’t People Understand Me:

I Like Your Mask

Why should you believe I like you
when I say I don’t care about myself
perhaps it’s because I can’t read your mind
as clearly as I can mine.

But the more I see of you
the more I think we’re no different
just humans living day to day
some with better masks than others.

Reflection 30 mirrored Space Brain Becoming Plain:

The poem was inspired by images of the universe and a scanned brain that looked similarly oblong.

A clear night sky from a dark viewing point is an incredible sight, but it is only what our eyes and brains can manage to see. Telescopes show the connectivity and immensity beyond our Earth view.

Human brains use complex systems to keep us functioning, but we can’t see how it is done, as our eyes see outwards. Scanning equipment shows the connectivity and immensity on the inside.

Mirror Poems about Religion, Life and Mind

Hi, it’s William Wolfsworth, satirical comedy poetry correspondent inspired by Romantic poet William Wordsworth and wolves. I’ve got three Folding Mirror poems by Marc Latham to catch up with today, so won’t write an epic introduction. There’s more about the poems, as well as more photos and introductory poems, over at fmpoetry.wordpress.com.

Heaven’s Christian Pope, Providing Community Hope

Is Pope Francis
entrancing us
with Marxist thinking
or am I juxtaposing
his Christian actions
with media reactions

Jesus was socialist, criticising corrupt greed

love society’s poor
religions always implore
journalists and politicians too
speaking for you
everybody cares
I’m March Hares

Completing Cycle, Living Life

Death
intriguing unknown
comforting escape
elusive companion
attractive option
the unconscious
long sleep
to somewhere better
monstrous manipulator

sweet talking serenader, becomes nagging poker

prodding parasite
trying to suck
life away
extinguish spark
attacking body
wiping mind
controlling force
showing true
Nature

Drown Song, Sun Dry

surface splashing
falling backwards
through a block
survival built
out of broken dreams
unremembered
until they rose buried
into my conscious

can’t change the past, no point seeing future

unconscious memory store
please give me more
recalling
living beyond whole nightmare
destruction point
life is precious
looking forwards
seeing straight

New Mirror Poetry Book Published on Kindle

Further to yesterday’s blog, Marc Latham’s 242 Mirror Poems and Reflections has now been reviewed and published on Amazon Kindle, and is available to view and buy for a token payment price, which has partly been imposed to make the book available to only those who want to read it. People who don’t want to read about the topics covered in the book shouldn’t be as tempted as they might be if it was free.
There was one late change to the poems included, with Libran Scales not really working without its image format, which didn’t translate into the Kindle format, so Basket Case was included. That of course means that all the Folding Mirror poems so far published on this site have now been published.
Thanks again to everybody that has visited this site over the last three years; without your support the book probably wouldn’t have been completed, and certainly wouldn’t have taken the title and form it has.
Have a great Sunday…
