A few days late, here is the assignment for day 2 of Writing 101: Poetry, which says “Clear or distorted, in your poem today tell us something about the reflections you see — in the world or in yourself.”

In your eyes reflected
a love that’s all mine,
with warmth and softness
of afternoon sunshine. 

In the mirror reflected
the smile of a perfect day,
finally reaching a goal
that once seemed so far away. 

In the lake reflected
the shimmering of hope,
searching for that special something
through a long telescope.

In a teardrop reflected
the shedding of grief,
to begin anew,
feeling the lightness of relief.

Reflections revealing
of dreams young and old.
Look a bit closer
to see visions of the heart and soul.
