New Mirror Poem Mixes Life Philosophy with Natural World Metaphors

Hi, it’s William Wolfsworth, satirical comedy poetry correspondent at the Greenygrey inspired by legendary Romantic poet William Wolfsworth. I forgot to tell you that last week’s Reflection 12 from 242 Mirror Poems and Reflections mirrored Human and Society Chicken and Egg Dilemma Oddly Solved, a poem posted on fmpoetry.wordpress.com just over three years ago.

New Mirror Poem

I was reminded of that because Marc Latham posted a new Folding Mirror poem on fmpoetry yesterday, and I have just imported it into the greenYgrey world. It mixes life philosophy with lots of natural world metaphors. Here it is:

Translucent Fall, Rise Transparent

life’s monotonous dreamscape
colour on dancing shadows
less rational than raindrops
doing what comes naturally
breaking an ocean apart
before returning to cloud

swimming and flying, living and dying

is dry land closer
to sea or air
should we even care
it’s sensible to sleep
while moonshine paints haunting
death’s monochrome nightmares

Raindrops
