~ Mirrored Lessons ~

My aged mother, now long gone
has moved into my mirror

she smiles at me when I walk by
reminding me of long ago
when both of us were younger

the child came crying, all forlorn
for lack of any friends, so mom
showed her a mirror, where
a good lesson…




Poems, vignettes and observations of life’s journey to share hope and inspiration discovered in everyday moments and routines
