A Reflection - Poem by Carolyn Brunelle

The hour glass of time
returns bits of me to the sea;
and it's these shattered fragments
that seem to whisper back to me.

'Who can know what is true,
or what is reality;
could be, LIFE is the illusion
and this, a distorted reverie.

I've pondered it all for sure
life must be something more;
serve some another purpose
perhaps on other shores.

Beyond our clouds of doubt and fear
maybe life is actually a mirror;
sparkling glass by some beautiful sea,
a reflection of light in eternity.

Topic(s) of this poem: life and death, philosophy, reflection, time

    A beautiful poem of wonder, curiosity and reflections of what life might be. As you say so brilliantly: 'Who can know what is true, or what is reality...'. Profound and meaningful poetical interlude, I definitely love it! Great poem, give it 10 - 10's! Thank you for sharing it, RoseAnn (Report)Reply
