Mirrors

by Libbie Kerr

NatureI cannot see myself
Without reflection

There is a calmness
To reflection
A stillness born of
Acceptance

But alone reflection
Has no object
Only subject
And as such
Is blinded by perception

If my purpose
Is knowledge

I look into the
Mirror of another
To see what ripples
I produce …

I offer myself
As a mirror
And reflect on
What is seen.
