New Mirror Poem and Poetry Book Reflections

All in good time for this blog, Marc Latham created his latest Folding Mirror poem yesterday, and posted it on fmpoetry.wordpress.com

 Mirror Poem

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

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

Reflection 8

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.
