Mirrors

forever set to disappoint

and astonish (I saw you

coming, sleek youthful

spirit, hobbled by shrinking

shell) like that rose, limp

and foolish, still blooming

under drooping limbs

and lace-fine shroud

of snow

 

Because I am slow this week, I had a chance to be inspired by two of Jenifer Cartland’s wonderful poems, “Another poem about a rose” and “Book of changes, ii.”
