What Do We See?


Mirrors, aren’t they a telling thing
They show us who we be?
Every blemish, every flaw
Wrinkle, dimple, fold and curve
Before not there, today we see

I’d rather view the tear-stained cheeks
Of one who never saw beyond
That painted glass which could not reach
Beyond the outward mask forlorn

Oh if I could be a mirror
Like that of streams that capture light
Where heaven surrounds every vision
And everything you see is bright

If all who looked upon this one
Though flawed, yet has found grace
I’d want them to walk away
With hope upon their face

dVerse prompt is the word mirrors. Any reflections we may have.


About Mary (tqhousecat)

I am a wife and a mother of two grown children. I love Jesus and sharing my faith through written words. I currently have a poetry blog and also write on medium.com. My main focus is hope in Christ. I only wish that whoever reads this will be blessed, inspired and occasionally amused.

    It certainly gets top-billing very appropriately, Mary! Wonderful write!



  4. A wonderful rhyme that is also wise.
