Reflection seen,
is not my own.
A figurine,
eyes so well known.

Her intense stare,
held plastic smile,
creates a flare,
with unique style.

Look straight at her,
see half of me,
bright force transfers,
clears all I see.

Suddenly blinks,
her tears away.
Reads thoughts I think,
“she can not stay.”

Inhale the hues,
she left behind.
Energies fuse,
soul, heart, and mind.

Feel her essence,
linger inside.
A full presence,
that will not hide.

  1. The word โ€œIntegrateโ€ in one form or about strongly in my presence the last week. During a Live I even pulled an Oracle card that said it and now here you are! Definitely sharing ๐Ÿ’ซ

      1. Big changes call for a lot of integration๐Ÿ’ซ. Full time RV Life on the road is currently loading and drops August 10th so we shall indeed see๐Ÿ’ซ

  2. Wow Grace.. i started to copy and paste but I love everything about the poem. The external and internal not always matching up but reflecting parts of each truth and clarity and integration is found in holding space for both. Love this! ๐Ÿ’–

  3. What a brilliant prompt and what a beautiful poem! The essence of truth and emotions are so evident here. Loved this mesmerising poem, dear Grace!!๐Ÿ’ž

  4. Inside, or outside
    What should I hide
    When the world swings
    And moments slide
    Enigmatic , topic
    But you are talented to execute it perfectly, my friendโค๏ธโค๏ธ
