I see my reflection in the mirror,
I see your reflection in the mirror,
A brief sketch or vignette
Ephemeral colours and shadows
Flickering and quivering
Like reflections in a pond.

reflections01_400We are but candle flames
That burn for a short time:
Then blackness,
Nothingness.

Yet we allow
The gift of life
To flow through
Our fingers,
Wasted,
Flowing into the
Gutters.

If we only knew
What a previous gift
Existence is,
That we will never
Be here again,
Would we live
Differently?
Would we choose
Differently?
I wonder…
