You’d think reflection would be easy.
As if staring into a clear pond,
You would see yourself so clearly
Just as you’d imagined yourself to be
It’s so wildly different.
There are details that didn’t exist in your imagination
That you notice.
There are blatantly obvious things
You had no idea you were holding.
There are ripples
Just subtle enough
Across the water
That allow the image to shift and change
As the light too,
Moving across the sky,
Brings both clouds and alpenglow
To the ever changing backdrop.
It is amazing
This time for reflection
This gazing deeply
This checking in from within
To that face staring back from the pond
Those eyes filled to the brim with love
With life lessons
With the deepest love ever witnessed
With the strongest heart ever shown
With openings upon openings
The eyes look back
And in them
What it is you’ve
Been looking for
It is life.
It is love.
It is you.
