Reflection



Looking for myself
in the lily pond.
What do I see?
What does the lens capture?

A shadow,
a few whisps of hair,
the one
behind the camera.

The heavens loom large.
I am not much
against the marbled sky,
across the span of time.
Yet I am all.
All that I have, all that I can become.

Reflected in the pond,
Reflections in my mind.
Always chasing understanding.
In the shadows of now,
Looking to the light of tomorrow.
