Reflection in Four—Three by Three Instances


Okay, so today I’m super proud of what I did for part three of my “Reflection in Four” series.

Each stanza is a haiku, first of all.  So that’s exciting.  I love haiku.

And, AND, it can be read in any direction.  Left to right, right to left, up and down, down then up, diagonal, or even each stanza individually.

(Admittedly, there might be a few ways that produce nonsense that I might have missed, but I did my best.)  🙂

Please be as excited as I am.



Reflection in Four—Three by Three Instances


She stared at mirrors                    Reflection Staring                          A hobby of his:

like sunsets at dawn but her       Version of hate hidden in              stating the obvious.  His

eyes dimmed in that light            softly stabbing dark                      eyes reflecting truth.


Dimming lights brighter               made nothingness here               In canyons, voices

in objects of reflection.                in a heart made of mirrors          echo back reflections of

Bad relationship.                           reflecting back gold.                     foolish gold drowning.


Children—the new form              for scapegoat making                   from possible forms

of mirrors for parents with          out of sunlight in mirrors             of dripping, melted gold made

sunlight setting away.                  might just make shadows.          out of nothing real.



This is the best thing I have ever done.

Thank you so much for reading this!  It really means a lot to me. 🙂  I’ve been so excited to share this with you guys, ever since I thought of the idea.

Leave a comment if you want to, and be sure to like the post if you were as proud of this poem and the writer as I was.  🙂
