Six Word Fridays ~ Mirror

Mirror, mirror on that wall, what
image is clearer than all? When
I look deeply into my eyes,
do I see truth? Or focus
on lies? Do I see junk
and clutter and dust...the trash
that's unsettled or lost or unjust?
Or do I see treasure and
moments divine that add up to
now, this life that's all mine?

The past is so tricky, it
can't be undone - or changed or
recaptured or ever respun. Yet still
I have power to choose what
I see - the trash or the
treasure - when I look at me!

My Memory Art six word fridays
Please join in the Friday fun!
Caption a photo, share a poem
or tell a story. Just remember,
only six words in each line!

And this week I'm linking up from here for
Weekend Reflections


  1. Gorgeous Selfie of you and fabulous words. I love the idea of choosing what you see in the mirror. Can I copy your words to use just for me?

  2. Love this. You are so deep. I hope you only ever see treasures!

  4. Only treasure, my dear, only treasure.

  5. So wonderful to see the photographer, the poet, the treasure behind the posts :)

  6. Very introspective! Definitely treasures! :-)

  7. hmm...I needed this thought when I viewed recently taken pics of me. Sadly, I did not see any treasure when first viewing them. Thanks for the boost, and I hope you're following your own great thought!

  8. This is something I've struggled with all my life - but now, I mostly see treasure. That's one advantage of getting older...and wiser... and more confident...

    Have a great weekend!

  9. You are a treasure for sure. Beautifully put.
