Mirror

IMG_2898 (1)
A mirror decorated for Christmas 2016, Guadalajara, Jalisco, Mexico
 


The napkins on the table
And paintings on the wall
Are pictured in the mirror,
The glass that sees them all.
 
But mirrors cannot picture
The realm within the soul,
Where Spirit speaks to spirit,
And crushed things are made whole.

Angel, do you see
reindeer coursing through the sky—
or are you just shy?

licking at the hanging fruit
ripens into song

Even when Mary’s askew,
Imagine what she can do
For those whose lives are shaken,
And those who feel forsaken.
