The Mirror Of My Soul

Written for Poets United Mid Week Motif
Linking to:  Poetry Pantry #186

The mirror of my soul my moments reflect
Not just of this life but of sojourns in time
Somehow I know but ever warily suspect
But like a nurturing mother she repeats the mime

If only I look and heed her care
For she is the essence of His love
And yet I rebel and ignore and dare
And close my eyes to her and above

Gently she coaxes and shows me the way
Patience epitomised love never wavering
Until at last in my life breaks that day
When I finally understand my soul's labouring

The mirror of my soul my moments reflect
Not just of this life but of sojourns in time
My soul I am blessed, for you I have met
Now the journey with you in this life is sublime

    1. Thanks Mary. I tried to bring out that our souls are not only divine but also connected. I like to think that when we look at ourselves in a mirror, we can in our mind's eye actually see our soul reflecting back.

  7. There is that moment when we recognize what we see and who we are. It changes everything. How beautifully this truth sits in the form you chose, coming back to the source.

  14. The last two lines led me to the concept the you are meeting yourself at the level of your soul. An thus meeting your life is understood. You are your own soul-mate.

    1. That's exactly right Stormcat. I look at my physical and spiritual self as 2 separate entities that however must merge to spend time on earth. So yes my spiritual self is the soul mate of my physical self. Glad you got the point in my poem.

    1. Thanks Bjorn. The mirror of one's soul however is never devious. It's just how we perceive what it's trying to show.
