Magpie Tales




Reflecting on the past.


Thinking of what might have been,

what could have been, 

what should have been.


Time blurred the pictures in her mind.

Images once vivid,  now vague. 

Memories once deep, now shallow.


But the mirror showed another view, 

not the view she thought she'd see.

If only she had looked before.

  3. reflections of what should have been? Time has blurred the pictures. Time does seem to distort our perceptions of what once was.

  10. The mirror has an honest way of speaking no matter how contrary we may feel. I like how you pen those words together, it is identifiable.
