Shadows

Did I see My shadow there?

It does not look like me.

disfigured, disconnected,

mutilated by objects in between

 

Mirrors have different ‘effects’

cameras have filters and lenses.

How do I recognize my own ‘self’’?

devices have so dulled my senses.

 

 

I seek a mirror which

to mould to my shape

realtime, real-form

in the same space.

 

Relativity contradicts

concepts of the Absolute

core energy is shadowed

by superimposed mass

 

I am One, shadows many.

growing in different directions.

The disconnect is real

the resemblance uncanny.

  1. I rarely resemble myself, and yet I am still there, I might just be an idea afterall, I will know when arms encircle again. Until then, shadows. I love this Raxeena, officially my favorite of yours, so honest and vulnerable. Printing it for the wall (on a bulleting board resembling Plato’s cave). 😉
