Broken Mirror

A mirror was accidentely
shattered into hundreds
of pieces


looking for one single
lost in the shifting

desert sand.

    Full of symbolism in few words.
    The mirror, the crystal that broken (i presume) , the lost heart, the lost identity....

    I loved the brevity of expression and the theme also.

  • Jesse Ellsbury (8/28/2013 9:52:00 AM)

    I like your line breaks and dropped lines. The broken phrases really echo and portray the theme in a very effective way. Well done!

    Sand is where the mirror came from. To sand it goes. One single piece. Beautiful poem. Thank you.
