Today is the stunning conclusion to the wonderful four part poetry series, “Reflection in Four!”
I hope you are ready.
This one might be more abstract than the other segments have been (yes, it is possible), but I took more care with the words. Please take note of both the first letter of each line, and the last letter of each line. 🙂
… I had to spend a lot of time on a scrabble “assistance” site to find words that began or ended with the letters I needed. (It’s for scrabble cheaters and poets doing fun things.)
Anyhoo, please enjoy the ~stunning conclusion.~
Reflection in Four—Instance Four
Reasoning with a mirror,
Especially one that lies, can never be done with ease.
Facetious remarks provide no relief—
Listening would be a foolish way to learn from mistakes. Lies are told in colloquial
Excerpts of truth, hidden in what no one
Cares to listen to. Mythic
Tales tell no lies, but the lives they reflect
Ignore all reason. Reflections are more spumoni
Orbs of ice cream than they are matters to be taken seriously here in limbo.
Nothing you say can convince me otherwise when all words end up frozen.
Nothing can be said for reflected words that end up frozen
Orbs of ice cream more often than not. Try to stay awake here in limbo—
Ignore anything that tells you otherwise—dreams of spumoni
Tail those who still bother to think inside the box of how we reflect
Caring to those we love. Sometimes I think about stories, mythic
Excerpts of nothing in particular. No one
Listens to the stories I spin of foolish mistakes trapped in reflections of colloquial
Facetiousness. The stories provide no relief,
Especially when made of lies uttered with ease.
Reasoning with these stories is like arguing with a mirror.
I really appreciate you taking time out of your day to give attention to my art. Thank you so much!
If you enjoyed this poem, or even just the mini-series in general, leave a like on this post. Comment telling me what part(s) you liked the most, and I’ll be sure to keep it up in the future.
(Pleasantly delivered constructive criticism also accepted. If it is rude, I will not take it seriously, and then not listen and therefore not improve. I just want to be good at what I do and grow as a writer in positive ways.) 🙂
Thank you again! Have a lovely day!
