Reflections in the waters of our lives
Reflections in the waters of our lives
a stream may reflect a vision of what we think we are.
a stream may reflect a vision of what we think we are.
reflections of the wild.
reflections of the wild.



Reflections are seen in the mirror,

and of a likeness, who they reveal,

Often those who would but take a look,

much less, they might conceal.


Revealing, as on the streams, each life,

its pictured sum of each and every deed,

A telling to all who would wish to see it,

whether we do fail, or we may succeed.


Our best reflections we would like to see,

is a humanistic trait, and without fail,

May be a motive of the self-centered,

as conceited, in each mind, to prevail.


A special portrait is painted by every soul,

in their books of life, to be on review,

Fondly characterized in that we may say,

or in the positive acts we each may do.


A reflection can be much more in the view,

than in a Summer's pool, or fond streams,

It can be accurate, its personification we see,

as reality, and not as a vision of dreams.


The reflected desires of the foolish, or knaves,

a deceitfulness made in their own mind,

While the honest and brave, with hearts of light,

not a slave, all in its truth, to find.

      Finally have made it here to get my Whonunuwho poem fix. They always bring me back to the joy and wonder of well written prosody. Jamie

      An abstract subject matter in practical illustrations. That in itself is poetic.

      I was drawn straight to this poem when I came to your profile because I was just thinking of this very topic! Yes. I hope it is the motive of the self-centered to develop more humanity. Thanks, Who. Sharing!
